Sozinho a desenhar


sub specie aeterni (IV)

Posted in Película,Sugestão por Hugo Torres em Agosto 28, 2007

Quatro incontornáveis num só momento: Stanley Kubrick na realização, Jack Nicholson na interpretação, Stephen King na escrita e Wendy Carlos na banda sonora. (Fosse isto um concurso e quantos vencedores teríamos?) Pois bem, 1980, um dos meus preferidos: The Shining.

Penso que o filme tem dois momentos absolutamente marcantes para a História do Cinema. Este não é nenhum deles. Mas é, provavelmente, o grande twist da coisa. Não escolho por aí, mas apenas por paixão ao momento. (Da Shelley Duvall, lembro-lhe apenas o Underneath, do Soderbergh, em 1995 – alguém com memória maior?)

    Quem diria que:

    -Stephen King tried to talk Stanley Kubrick out of casting Jack Nicholson in the lead suggesting, instead, either ‘Michael Moriarty’ or Jon Voight. King had felt that watching either of these normal-looking men gradually descend into madness, would have immensely improved the dramatic thrust of the storyline. Indeed, many fans of the book agreed with King, adding that Nicholson appeared fairly crazy from the very start, thus there was little or no surprise when Jack ultimately went totally overboard.

    -At the time of release, it was the policy of the MPAA to not allow the portrayal of blood in trailers that would be approved for all audiences. In order to overcome this, Stanley Kubrick convinced the board that was approving the trailer that the blood flooding out of the elevator was actually rusty water.

    -Stanley Kubrick demanded 127 takes from Shelley Duvall in one scene.

    -Jack Nicholson ad-libbed the line “Here’s Johnny!” in imitation of announcer Ed McMahon’s famous introduction of Johnny Carson on U.S. network NBC-TV’s long-running late night television program “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” (1962). Carson once used the clip of Nicholson as the introduction to one of his annual anniversary specials.

    -Stanley Kubrick, known for his compulsiveness and numerous retakes, got the difficult shot of blood pouring from the elevators in only three takes. This would be remarkable if it weren’t for the fact that the shot took nine days to set up; every time the doors opened and the blood poured out, Kubrick would say, “It doesn’t look like blood.” They had tried shooting that scene for an entire year.

    Etc… Etc… Etc…

    Lembro-me dela, da Duvall, no Annie Hall, de Allen, uns três anos antes. Nada mais.
