The only foreword Stanley Kubrick ever wrote, for the publication of Krzysztof Kieślowski & Krzysztof Piesiewicz’s screenplay of The Decalogue [Faber & Faber, 1991]:
Don’t you DARE tell me that after Emmanuel Lubezki is nominated for The Tree of Life, Children of Men, and The New World, that Gravity is his defining work as a cinematographer. Fuck you.
"My car’s my best friend. My office. My home. My location. I have a very intimate sense when I am in a car with someone next to me. We’re in the most comfortable seats because we’re not facing each other, but sitting side by side. We don’t look at each other, but instead do so only when we want to. We’re allowed to look around without appearing rude. We have a big screen in front of us and side views. Silence doesn’t seem heavy or difficult. Nobody serves anybody. And many other aspects. One most important thing is that it transports us from one place to another."
