Before Kubrick was Kubrick he was an inspired photographer for Look Magazine. The “In the news” link, following today’s haiku, fills you in on both his photographic beginnings as well as the upcoming show featuring a young genius’ story within the story you already know.  As for the poem’s title, well the reference is clear to fans of the auteur’s oeuvre. If you are not a fan, don’t be a stranger.
