Behind the Velvet Rope Few directors have been as zealously protective of their privacy as Stanley Kubrick, which makes the first comprehensive collection of his interviews a rare glimpse of his own views of his life and work. For Stanley Kubrick: Interviews, editor Gene D. Phillips has tracked down pieces from 1959 to 1987, yielding an overview of the arc of Kubrick's approach to filmmaking. Surprisingly affable, Kubrick discusses everything from religion to nuclear energy and money. "It's a lot of trouble making a picture," says Kubrick at one point. "It can be very boring."

Kubrick, the American who made his home in London, England, to create films without influence from Hollywood, had expertise in cinematography unlike Stone and Huston. On many of his films, he operated the camera in some scenes. His concern with the visual aspects of filmmaking is apparent from such works as A Clockwork Orange , 2001: A Space Odyssey , and Barry Lyndon . But all three directors could operate in multiple filmmaking roles, hence the label auteur; and Kubrick personifies the label, though he never won an Oscar. Some of the interesting pieces include Colin Young's article in Film Quarterly in 1959, a piece from the book The Movie Makers (1973), and the last interview by Tim Cahill in Rolling Stone in 1987.
