A trip to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art last year in November 2012. The current featured exhibition is Stanley Kubrick, it runs till 30 June 2013. 'The Shining' is one of my favouritest film, so I was delighted the exhibition was just what interested me (had obtained a free pass too).

These were some proposed cover art that were rejected.

Love the twins!

2001: A Space Odyssey

Designed by Georg Jensen for the film

A Clockwork Orange

Barry Lyndon perhaps? Haven't seen this film yet.

There was a small feature on Expressionism in films. LOVE Metropolis (and the poster). I just saw a 'Giorgio Moroder presents' version with a remix of the soundtrack with 80s music, unfortunately it kinda bombed, sorry.

I watched Dr Caligari after this exhibit lol.
