Good post.

I like your theories in the "blasphemy" paragraph. I can't agree with needing the 2x button myself. I always like that sequence, even at its length, for two reasons. 1) It reminds me of how seriously Fail Safe takes itself, and I like to imagine Kubrick wringing every last bit of jargon out of that moment as a way of putting his thumb in Lumet's eye (and stealing his thunder). Probably not the case...I just like to imagine it.

2) Kubrick was all about highlighting the absurd with this film. I think those busy men, with all their codes and switches,tickled his absurdity bone.

Very enjoyable read, sir.

Holy shit, a comment!

Yeah, maybe the scene is played sooooo deadpan and goes on for soooo long that it's a joke that sort of flies over my head. It's just a sequence that always sticks out for me in a film that is otherwise quite economically paced, and wonderfully unsubtle.


Here's my take: Clinton, Hitler, Jackie Chan(?), Napoleon, Che Guevara, Mozart, Michael Jordan, Picasso, Dalai Lama, A. Einstein, Charlie Chaplin, the atomic bomb(?), Stalin, Elivs(?), Columbus, Lincoln, Caesar


Development of A.I. originally began with dicertor Stanley Kubrick in the early 1970s. Kubrick hired a series of writers up until the mid-1990s, including Brian Aldiss, Bob Shaw, Ian Watson and Sara Maitland. The film languished in development hell for years, partly because Kubrick felt computer-generated imagery was not advanced enough to create the David character, whom he believed no child actor would believably portray. In 1995, Kubrick handed A.I. to Steven Spielberg

I don't really see peisens either. I'm just being a dick. Not a big fan of the campaign, though. Or of Diesel's or of the French Wrangler "We Are Animals" tripe or of the new "Go Forth" Levi's hooey.
