  • The Phantom Carriage (Victor Sjöström, 1921)
  • Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1927)

I've seen both of these at the San Francisco International Film Festival with live musical accompaniment and original scores.

Such a great photo.

I was hoping Stan would have tipped his hat to Carpenter. Alas, I have yet to see any evidence for such a compliment.

Oh yes, Kubrick is one of my two artistic heroes of the XX Century, the other one being John Coltrane.

As a parlor game, I wonder which current directors/films Uncle Stanley would have enjoyed, I'm guessing Christopher Nolan would tickle his fancy (imagine Christian Bale in 'Eyes Wide Shut' instead of the wacko scientologist), probably Fincher's 'Zodiac' and Cuaron's 'Children Of Men', definitely 'Das Lieben Der Anderen (The Lives Of Others)' and 'Mulholland Drive'.
