Stanley Kubrick Confesses To Faking The Moon Landings?

via Stanley Kubrick Confesses To Faking The Moon Landings | Your News Wire.

This video has been doing the rounds for the past couple of days. Did a filmmaker get a confession out Stanley Kubrick in the days before his death in 1999 that he had helped to fake the 1960s moon landings?

Well, of course not. Not because it couldn’t  be true – of all the ‘classic’ conspiracy theories, a faked moon landing has probably the most believable explanation, as the US had come second to the USSR at every step of the space race – but because it clearly isn’t Stanley Kubrick. And it’s digital footage which would have been enormously expensive to produce with rather bulky equipment in 1999, rather than the “hidden cam” we see here.

But it’s well done, nevertheless. Here’s the first part, and you can see the rest – including a “leaked” cut of the filmmaker’s documentary – at the link, above.

There is a real irony that one of the greatest filmmakers ever could be “exposed” in such a low-quality video. Even more interesting to me is that this narrative has gone mainstream over the last two or three years. What is it about adding Kubrick to the moon landing story that makes it more believable – or perhaps more accurately, makes us want to tell it again?

    David, have you seen this unedited material (posted last September) that actually includes directorial instructions to the actor on how to construct the narrative?

    Ceerap, did i give you more work to do by posting this last week? lol, Sorry about that.

    So Sony Digital 8mm was around at the time,precursor to MIni DV etc, and maybe going for what $600 to $1000 ish price? would have worked for the job. need to see link for the rest of the guys film, i am not sure it was meant to be hidden cam, looked more like late night drinking session off the cuff, get your camera out kind of situation. Would be the only explanation i could see for shooting it in such crappy lighting, unless you are trying to make it look like that (off the cuff etc), or faking it.

    The camera’s work ok in low light like that, but if the rest of his documentary (going to go look now) looks like that, he’s hopefully unemployed. Still I don’t believe it’s Kubrick though, but sometimes the pointy eyebrow makes me think otherwise. But how much effort does it take to go switch one other room light on if you want people to believe your stuff right? G. Pistachio.

      Of course a faked video says nothing about the moon landing be real or not, since the discussion is on the video being hoaxed not the landing. lol
