Back when I was in college and still pretty unfocused on what I wanted to study/do/become, I took as many courses as I could to broaden my perspective. One such random class was all about Stanley Kubrick. I'll admit that I initially signed up for the movie screenings and popcorn (no joke), but soon found out that it wasn't as simple as that. His films were incredibly complex and at times controversial - something that was hard to grasp as a young media studies minor. But I've admired his work ever since, so when I found out about the exhibit dedicated to him and his work at LACMA, I jumped at the chance to see it. If you're in the area, I highly recommend it, but for those of you who are unable to go, here are some of the things I loved most.
