CITIZEN KUBRICK: A reader sent

CITIZEN KUBRICK: A reader sent me this great story from The Guardian on visiting Stanley Kubrick’s estate a few years after he died. It really does feel like touring Xanadu shortly after Charles Foster Kane’s death, which is rather ironic, considering that Kubrick went out of his way to be as far removed from Orson Welles as possible, both in terms of lifestyle and career path.

In the end, it’s fascinating how Kubrick’s obsessive collecting and archiving paralleled that of Welles’ greatest protagonist.
