Movie Info

It's a rare person who would give up fame and fortune to toil in obscurity for someone else's creative vision. Yet, that's exactly what Leon Vitali did after his acclaimed performance as Lord Bullingdon in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon. The young actor surrendered his thriving career to become Kubrick's loyal right-hand man. For more than two decades, Leon played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping Kubrick make and maintain his legendary body of work. The complex, interdependent relationship between Leon and Kubrick was founded on devotion, sacrifice and the grueling, joyful reality of the creative process. By entering their unique world we come to understand how the mundane gives rise to the magnificent as timeless cinema is brought to life at its most practical and profound level.

  • Filmworker works best when poking holes in the altar of genius men whose attention to detail is almost always inexplicably tethered to being an outright bastard.

  • Twenty feet from stardom, a million miles from sanity

    June 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • After a while, the anecdotes amount to Kubrick stanning.

    June 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There is something genuinely touching about Kubrick's blind faith in Vitali.

    March 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Candid and unsentimental, Filmworker is bound to leave an impression on the minds of any cinephile.

  • Few voices are missing from this incredibly thorough piece of work. Zierra has rounded up dozens of cast and crew members with stories to tell, and though the film is densely packed with information, nothing feels extraneous.
