Cleveland Cult Film Festival 5
United States | 1953 | Stanley Kubrick
Stanley Kubrick’s first feature (which he tried to suppress and destroy while alive, calling it “inept and pretentious”) chronicles the exploits of a military patrol behind enemy lines during an unnamed, abstract war. This low-budget independent movie may not be 2001, but it’s visually impressive and contains the seeds of much of the director’s later work. Kubrick also photographed the film and co-wrote it with Howard Sackler (The Great White Hope). Frank Silvera and Paul Mazursky star.
68 min. Blu-ray.
