Three Interviews with Stanley Kubrick by Michel Ciment

These interviews are excerpted from the book “Kubrick” by Michel Ciment; first conducted upon the release of the films they respectively focus upon, they were corrected and approved by Stanley Kubrick for incomplete publication in magazines at those times. Complete versions were published in the French edition of Ciment’s book in 1980. In July of 1981, Stanley Kubrick expressed a desire to revise these texts for all foreign editions of the book. It is Kubrick’s own expanded English versions which are reprinted here.
