Stanley Kubrick Quote

Post by Alexander Noble » Mon Feb 15, 2016 4:49 pm

I'd like to query the group about Stanley Kubrick's famous quote that "Hitler was right about almost everything." I'm sure that could be a useful tool in many situations, if it's legitimate. I've researched and can find confirmations that the statement was made, but never about the context, place, situation, audience, etc. All of which could change the meaning. Anybody know?

Stanley Kubrick was a Jew. That being said, he was certainly Jew-wise himself. Many of his film's contain references to Nietzschean or Fascistic concepts for example the Star Child in 2001: A Space Odyssey. This was certainly a reference to the coming of the higher-man.

Some Jews have a certain liking for Fascist or authoritarian ideas and aesthetics but their idea of Fascism is something quite different from the National-Socialist model. They may adopt the forms of a given style of organizing a society but ultimately they are quite alien in their essence and application......and some Jews simply hate themselves.

Interesting question. Kubrick was a Jew, albeit a talented one. There are references to Kubrick and Hitler here: http://www.collativelearning.com/ACO%20 ... 20%20.html

I don't recall his ever writing about Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, but remember that ACO was one of Dr. Pierce's favorite films.

One of Kubrick's first films, Spartacus, (1960) was about as Jewish as a movie gets: https://muse.jhu.edu/login?auth=0&type= ... burton.pdf

Lost Worlds Of 2001!

The film "2001: A Space Odyssey" brought space science to the general masses.
Today we may consider it as common place, but in 1968 when the film was
released, humankind had yet to walk on the Moon. We certainly didn’t have
any experience with Jupiter. Yet somehow the producer, Stanley Kubrick,
successfully peered into the future and created a believable story. One
of his methods was to employ Frederick I. Ordway III as his science
consultant. While Ordway has since passed, he left behind a veritable
treasure trove of documents detailing his work for Kubrick. Science
author and engineer Adam K. Johnson got access to this trove which
resulted in the book “2001: The Lost Science – The Scientist, Influences
& Designs from the Frederick I. Ordway III Estate Volume 2“. It’s a
wonderful summary of Ordway’s contributions and the film’s successes.

Wade says, "Film buffs may recall 'Squirt,' the character 'Heywood Floyd'
telephones his daughter from the space station."

created the picture. Note Israeli flag in background."
