He finds that most contain materials reflecting work Kubrick did after the release of “Barry Lindon ” in 1975, when Kubrick’s film output slowed down.
Ronson also finds finds audition tapes for “Full Metal Jacket,” photographs to find the right hat for “Clockwork Orange” or the right doorway for “Eyes Wide Shut”.
Thousands of details that went into Kubrick’s meticulous approach and Kubrisck’s boxes show “the rhythm of his genius.”
