    Kubrick was right to be embarrassed by this. 5 years 9 months ago

    I understand why Kubrick would not want anyone to see this. The dialogue and acting are just above B-movie level, with enough philosophy that becomes simply too much for a short run time. Even at sixty minutes, I checked the time too often. But the shot selection is indicative of a great eye and an emerging talent.

    Not every great director made great films from the gate and it's always nice to see where they come from as all we remember are their masterpieces. This isn't a failure by any means and greatly enhances my appreciation of everything Kubrick made after. If you watch it on silent or with a soundtrack of your choosing, you might find yourself enjoying it a whole lot more.
