After my previous post on Stanley Kubrick, I kind of “fell down the rabbit hole” watching videos about him. Found this one that brings two of my favorite things together, Kubrick and The Simpsons. Anybody that has watched The Simpsons for even a handful of episodes, know the writers reference movies (and pop culture in general) almost non-stop.
But the show leans heavily on referencing Stanley Kubrick’s films perhaps more any other director. As you can see in this video, there are dozens of references to 2001, Dr. Strangelove, The Shining, and even Eyes Wide Shut sprinkled throughout the series.
