Trailer for Underrated Filmmaking Doc ‘Filmworker’ About Leon Vitali

Filmworker Trailer

“Stanley assigned Leon to me.” Kino Lorber has debuted a trailer for the indie documentary Filmworker, telling the story of “filmworker” and Stanley Kubrick’s right-hand man Leon Vitali. This is a MUST see for film geeks and cinephiles, a fascinating look behind-the-scenes. Most probably don’t know who Leon Vitali is, that’s because he never was in the spotlight at all, but once you see this doc everything will change. Vitali started out as an up-and-coming actor in England, first landing a bigger role in Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon as Lord Bullingdon. From there he gave up everything and devoted his life to Kubrick and started working behind-the-scenes as his right hand man, helping him in everything from editing to directing and so much more. This is a superb doc that is also another rare look at how Kubrick worked, what he was like on sets and how he made his masterpieces. It’s an underrated gem, worth a watch whenever you can catch it. ›››
