Úr nýjasta eintakinu af New Yorker:

In Haaretz, A. J. Goldmann wrote of Kubrick’s longstanding desire to make a film about the Holocaust, and cited Kubrick’s brother-in-law and producer, Jan Harlan (from the book “Stanley Kubrick Archives”) about Kubrick’s attempt, in 1976, to recruit Isaac Bashevis Singer to write the script:

Singer, who—unlike many of his friends—was not a Holocaust survivor, declined, saying, “I don’t know the first thing” about the Holocaust.

Goldmann also cites Kubrick’s response to the film by Steven Spielberg that put “The Aryan Papers” out of commission:

Frederic Raphael, who co-authored the screenplay for “Eyes Wide Shut,” recalls Kubrick questioning whether a film could truly represent the Holocaust in its entirety. After Raphael mentioned "Schindler’s List,” Kubrick replied: “Think that’s about the Holocaust? That was about success, wasn’t it? The Holocaust is about six million people who get killed. Schindler’s List is about 600 who don’t. Anything else?”


Annars er mikil synd að Kubrick myndin varð aldrei að veruleika. Hann hefði ábyggilega gert þessu viðfangsefni góð skil. Eins og mörgum er kunnugt, þá finnst mér Schindler's List vera afskaplega léleg kvikmynd.

Eins og alþjóð veit þá sýgur Spielberg súra og illalyktandi sígaunabelli.
