Ellipses and Enigmas of Unrelated Scenes

(p.34) Chapter Two Plot Construction
Stanley Kubrick
Elisa Pezzotta
University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the plots of Kubrick’s films. It argues that at a more superficial level, the plots are often full of ellipses and mysteries that remain unsolved and which cannot be explained through a causal logic. At a deeper level, the features of classical Hollywood narrative are implicitly undermined and sacrificed in the name of the auteur’s style.
