Old Man Speaks Truth; Internet Baffled

http://www.collider.com/2010/12/02/robert-duvall-stanley-kubrick-performances…

…Duvall continued, dismissing the performances in such classics as The Shining and A Clockwork Orange as “the worst performances I’ve ever seen in movies”. 

It’s too bad they try to dismiss Duvall as being “deliberately provocative” instead of admitting he was “entirely correct in his appraisal.” The only thing worse than the wooden, stilted performances Kubrick (intentionally, it seems) forced from leads who could actually act were the numbingly awful shadow-puppets he created out of bad actors, like Tom Cruise.

After an almost infinite amount of film stock and production time, endless retakes, and agonizing editing, there’s no other conclusion but that Eyes Wide Shut was absolutely the film Kubrick wanted to make. And it’s absolute drivel, from start to finish.
