Kubricks is a 2013 UK experimental film directed by Dean Cavanagh[1] and Josh Cavanagh, and produced by Creation Records CEO Alan Mcgee[1]. Starring Roger Evans, Gavin Bain and Joanna Pickering, the film is influenced by and pays homage to Stanley Kubrick.[2] It plays with ideas of consensus reality, quantum phenomena, synchronicity and symbolism.[3]


Donald (Roger Evans) is a desperate film director obsessed with Stanley Kubrick who escapes from a mental asylum to hide at the home of Alan Mcgee (who plays himself). The lead actors Bain) Gavin Bain and pickering) Joanna Pickering (conjured up as mirrors to Jack and Wendy Torrance in The Shining or Dr. Bill and his wife in Eyes Wide Shut)[4] are exposed to unusual methods to gain performance, and with help of a real onset neuro-linguist therapist (Chris Madden) observing.[5] The actors begin to turn on one another, with their own existence thrown into question in the director's quest to make a feature film with no cast, crew or clue on how to do it.[1][4][5][6]

The film was produced on a minuscule budget in Hay On Wye, Wales in one week in summer 2012[5]. It was filmed on location on Alan Mcgee's grounds.[5]

Matt Berry was initially cast in role of Donald.[3]

There was no script or scene preparation and the actors stated they used improvisation.[7] Instead of a script the cast were sent a 52-page manual on quantum mechanics.[7]

Kubricks premiered in Leeds in UK and New York in summer 2013[8]. The film was intended for iTunes[8] but streamed on Christmas Eve, 2013 via YouTube.[5]


Kubricks is described as a subjective film that leaves space for interpretation.[5] Dean Cavanagh was influenced by Stanley Kubrick by the ways he conveyed messages through symbols, codes and puzzles in his films.[4]


Kubricks gained cult following with the British rock and roll scene.[8] Bands such as GlasVegas and The La's Lee Mavers attended the screening.[8]


The Kubrick Motion Picture soundtrack was compared to the mood conjured by A Clockwork Orange soundtrack[6] and was released by Dean Cavanagh on band camp.[9]
