The Crime Films Of Stanley Kubrick

Ep. 53

Before he became KUBRICK and the film criticism world bowed at his feet, director Stanley Kubrick got his foot in the door and established his credentials in two crime films, Killer's Kiss (1955) and The Killing (1956). Adam and Darrell are joined by film lecturer David Leicester to discuss this brace of films that kickstarted one of the most revered sequences of films in cinema history.
