This movie knows it’s trash. It’s still trash. Except for Crawford, on both counts.
Is this one of my favorite films? Not by a long shot. It’s Kubrick’s finest 142 minutes though, and it definitely needs to be experienced by everyone at least once. Just make sure the screen is large enough to encompass what’s great about it, and make sure your stereo dulls the piercingly high register.
This film will be in 350 IMAX theaters for only one week, starting August 24. If you were ever curious, take the time to see it now.
