Stanley Kubrick uses his skill in the visual arts to create stories that first startle the people and then enthrall them to go deeper into the worlds he has created. His sense of perfection has been described as brutal and overly dramatic, but always it was found to lead to a wonder no man had ever seen beforehand. His filmography covers a wide range, one whose components he has no trouble manipulating. Throughout his career as a filmmaker he was always directing his own light towards his viewers. He never did care about attention, or critical reception, or conservatism, or politics. He only cared about art.
