Editorial Reviews


"While the essays underscore Kubrick's well-known jovial and pessimistic vision, they also point to his filmic perfectionism along with his outraged yearning for a better order. The book will appeal to Kubrick's avid aficionados, general cinephiles, and all those involved in cultural debates." - Alain J. J. Cohen, University of California, San Diego"

More About the Author

James Diedrick was born in Issaquah, Washington on Rainier Avenue with a magnificent view of the mountain itself. He learned to fish for trout in Issaquah Creek, learned to love reading from both his parents, and came under the spell of popular literature at a young age by helping with the city's paper drives and hoarding first issues of Dr. Strange, Spiderman, and other now-lost collector's items. He graduated to Kurt Vonnegut, then Saul Bellow, Flannery O'Connor, and in his senior year of high school all the existentialists--Camus, Sartre, Franz Kafka, and Joseph Heller (the latter smuggled into his senior high school English class by his progressive and influential teacher Gretchen Lee). He attended graduate school at the University of Washington, where Mt. Rainier is still in view on cloudless days. After graduating with a Ph.D. in English in 1979, he taught at Chapman University, Albion College, and now Agnes Scott College. He has written articles on Charles Dickens, George Eliot, John Ruskin, and a book on the contemporary author Martin Amis. He also co-edited Depth of Field: Stanley Kubrick, Film, and the Uses of History.
