De Vries, Daniel

De Vries, Daniel
   Daniel De Vries, a graduate of Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a reviewer for the Grand Rapids Interpreter and for The Reformed Journal, wrote a 75-page monograph entitled The Films of Stanley Kubrick, published in 1973 by the William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company in Grand Rapids. The monograph ends with a filmography that goes through A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. De Vries objects to STANLEY KUBRICK’s “twisted” adaptation of the ANTHONY BURGESS novel, concluding that “the trend in Kubrick’s work is downhill”; he then offers Kubrick advice about how to emend his “bad habits. ” His writing is journalistic, dated, superficial, and not essential reading.
