Stanley Kubrick

This chapter argues that Kubrick’s films deliberately exhibit their awareness of being works of art in several ways. For example, the diegetic world is evoked in the diegesis itself through the presence of scenes that recall previous sequences or foretell subsequent scenes, often parodying them. Or the extradiegetic world is evoked in the diegesis both indirectly and directly. In the former case, the extradiegesis is recalled through the evocation of the making of the film and, in the latter, through the citation of the cinematic medium in the medium itself.

Keywords:   films, filmmaking, filmmakers, diegesis
