‘No other film director has managed to push boundaries and redefine multiple genres like Stanley Kubrick.’           

Regarded as one of the most influential filmmakers of the 20th century, Stanley Kubrick’s legacy will forever remain intact. Following the 20th anniversary of his death, the Design Museum presents a spectacular exhibition of the American director’s most famous works, his special relationship to the city of London and his unique approach in depicting a compelling story through compelling film.

Paving the way in all various kinds of film genres, Kubrick continuously broke and disrupted boundaries, rules and stigma when it came to his creative design process. Whether it was the chilling psychological horror The Shining (1980) or the iconic war film Full Metal Jacket (1987), Kubrick surpassed genre-defining films of the time to create his masterpieces, which although were often met with criticism, were also praised for their originality, directing and editing.

Design Museum’s exhibit on Kubrick and his most well-known films can only be described as outstanding. Upon entry, you are greeted by war time classic. Then filtering out through the exhibition, each pod allows the audience to relish in iconic scenes from his works, have an exclusive insight into behind-the-scenes footage, original letters and photographs, and browse over 700 rare props. Moreover, the various displays shed light on the director’s notable relationship to London – which was not only the primary location for most of the film sets, but which also served as one of his main sources of inspiration.

The exhibition, running until the 15th of September, is a must-visit for anyone in getting an exclusive insight into the world of the meticulous genius and his significant impact on the development of cinema. An individual with a fascination for pioneering film design, directing and editing, Stanley Kubrick will forever remain a cinematic icon.
