The wonderful Netflix fairies brought 2001: A Space Odyssey, to my house this weekend. (FYI I'm such a movie addict that I utilize Netflix, Blockbuster, OnDemand & I fully claim my bf's movie library as my own). Its sad but true. But back to my point. Kubrick is quite possibly my most favorite director ever, especially considering that The Shining is my most ultimate favorite film. It is insane and beautiful.
I can't believe that it has taken me this long to see 2001 ASO, and honestly is leaves you speechless. Beneath all of the layers and layers of meaning in this movie I can only really come to one very concrete conclusion - Gareth Pugh loves Kubrick. Chris Kane quite possibly may have to credit him for serious inspiration too.
Space-like forms mingling with the baroque and rococo. Elegance in a viscous primate in a desert landscape. Film to fashion - Love it.
P.S. I cannot believe I didn't invest in Gareth's two tone boots. I could just kick myself.
