The Young & Stupid Stanley Kubrick and Me

Kubrick started his career as a photographer, then an assistant professional photographer, then an amateur documentary filmmaker, then a feature filmmaker and most of his early works sucks. He admitted that he hated reading until he graduate from college, and he needed to catch up intellectually to match his cinematography and his references. He learned film productions by making a lot of stupid mistakes. And that is exactly what I am doing today. Of course I’m in my thirties, kind of a little late. But Yasmin Ahmad, the famous Malaysian director, made her first feature in her 40’s, which is nice.
