The Hell With This Podcast #15 - Paths Of Glory

Post by Chad Peter » Fri Mar 17, 2017 7:40 pm

"Paths of Glory"

Finally we crack open an "older" film - Stanley Kubrick's "Paths of Glory". Mark and I take a crack at what appears to be Kubrick's baby-legs movie - the first film that put Kubrick on the map. There's signs of rawness and flaws amongst glimmers of genius that shaped Kubrick. It's clear here that he's got a unique vision that would later blossom into, well, the film's we know and love (most of us, anyway). We get into the absurdity of Kubrick's war films, and how this must have been quite a liberal film back in the day.

Side note: Somehow neither Mark nor myself noticed that the German Woman at the end of the film, was actually the woman that would become Kubrick's wife.

Castro Theatre I mention in the podcast. Since I have photographic proof, I might as well share it.

Magnolia is another one of those movies in my collection that I really enjoyed but, when I introduce it other people, the common response is "what the fuck did you just make me watch?" Meh, to each their own.

This does not appear to be in the Kubrick boxset that I got for Christmas. I will in the fullness of time track it down and watch it since watching everything Kubrick is on my to do list.
