There have been so many really great directors that have come and gone throughout Hollywood’s history and I think that for the most part when we think of the best directors of all time we actually are thinking of the strangest directors of all time. The strangest filmmakers of all time are definitely people who we revere and maybe we don’t think they are strange but the truth of the matter is that they definitely are geniuses to say the least in terms of drama and timing and execution of filmmaking but their stories and style are definitely very strange, especially the characters. It is funny because we have all these super famous filmmakers but when we go back and look at their filmographies it is all pretty much the same and all of them were interested in strange concepts like aliens and murders and other horrible and crazy aspects of people’s imaginations.
I think that for the most part if you are going to be a filmmaker in Hollywood then you have to have some kind of super natural imagination that is just right on point with what you have in your mind, and then really if you have this super natural imagination then you can direct people and set them up to create what you had in your mind, and that is pretty much the main job of a director and filmmaker in Maui. It just so happens that the people who are best at this kind of job just so happen to be very strange people. So the next strange filmmaker that we are going to be talking about is arguably one of the best filmmakers of all time in Stanley Kubrick.
There is no denying the facts that Stanley Kubrick is one of the strangest filmmakers in the history of cinema, and that goes to show with almost all of his movies and he was absolutely the best at being the strangest of the strange and telling these types of stories in such fantastic ways that it became very awesome and super imaginable for all of the audiences that saw his films. Let’s just start talking about some of the strange films of Stanley Kubrick, and I think the movie that stands out the most to me is The Shining which is one of Jack Nicholson’s best performances of his entire career in which he goes absolutely crazy and it is just awesome, and then there is 2001: A Space Odyssey which is a very abstract and visual film that is really unlike any other film ever and is just a complete masterpiece.
Then there is A Clockwork Orange in which I think is one of the best films ever made and is also so extremely strange. What is crazy about Stanley Kubrick’s movies are that, and of course there are a lot of conspiracy theories about this, but his films allude to a lot of real conspiracy theories in all these strange ways and I think that he was doing this on purpose but maybe not for the same purposes that everyone might think that he was doing it for.
Of course the way in which Stanley Kubrick died was very strange as well in which he created the movie Eyes Wide Shut which a lot of people think is one of the strangest and most controversial films ever made, and right after he showed it to Warner Brothers he was killed three days later from a heart attack. A lot of people including his own family think that he was killed.
