A tribute to all your favourite scenes of degenerate drug use in the movies, presented in five remedial, madouvit chapters: The Giggs, Tripping Major B*llsack, Overfalsity Of Confidence, F**k Yeah Motherf**ker and Asleepyness.
Utterly NSFW unless you work in film, in which case full screen and volume up.
Stanley Kubrick would have turned 85 on this day last week. With the help of the director’s brother-in-law, right hand man and executive producer Jan Harlan, the BFI has assembled an extensive list of Kubrick-approved movies.
The first and only top ten compliled by the director himself was the following list of personal faves submitted to Cinema magazine in 1969:
1. I Vitelloni (Fellini, 1953)
2. Wild Strawberries (Bergman, 1957)
3. Citizen Kane (Welles, 1941)
4. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Huston, 1948)
5. City Lights (Chaplin, 1931)
6. Henry V (Olivier, 1944)
7. La notte (Antonioni, 1961)
8. The Bank Dick (Fields, 1940)
9. Roxie Hart (Wellman, 1942)
10. Hell’s Angels (Hughes, 1930)
And that’s just for starters.
