(p.183) Conclusion
Stanley Kubrick

Elisa Pezzotta

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents some conclusions about the role of Kubrick in the history of cinema and his role as an adapter, as well as, more generally, about the art of cinematic adaptations. It suggests that Kubrick can be considered a modernist auteurin the history of cinema, and, in particular, can be regarded as an heir of the modernist avant-garde of the 1920s. But, unlike his predecessors, he creates a cinema that is not only centered around the ontology of the medium, but whose main purpose seems the staging of sublime experiences.

Keywords:   film adaptations, filmmakers, filmmaking, modernist avant-garde
