One of most iconic filmmaker in our generation was director Stanley Kubrick. His films stood out for being strange, weird and visually artistic. He did not make mainstream flicks like director Steven Spielberg or summer popcorn fluff like Michael Bay, Stanley Kubrick was unique. This was the last week of “The Stanley Kubrick Exhibition” at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, so being cinema fans here at Retrenders, we stopped by the museum.
