The Killing
2011
Description
Director: Stanley Kubrick
A veteran criminal Johnny Clay (Sterling Hayden), is planning one last big heist before settling down to a respectable marriage with Fay (Colleen Gray). Teaming with several cohorts, Johnny masterminds a racetrack robbery. The basic flaw is that all the crooks involved are losers and small-timers who find themselves in way over their heads despite
their supposed cleverness. None of the participants is more pathetic than George Peatty (Elisha Cook Jr.), who is goaded into the robbery by his covetous and far-from-faithful wife (Marie Windsor). As in a Greek tragedy, Johnny's best-laid schemes go awry.

    About Director:- A filmmaker who delved into more genres than any other director in film history, Stanley Kubrick is the man behind iconic films like A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, Lolita, Paths of Glory, The Shining, Dr. Strangelove and 2001: A Space Odyssey among others. Obsessed with detailing, Kubrick’s perfectionism and his accomplished style are considered highly influential, and now he has been elevated to the position of arguably the most gifted director ever.
