The starting gun for one of the biggest fire-sales in western history was fired as Greek officials began appointing advisers for the country's ambitious privatisation drive.

"Our target is clear, and it is to generate €1.7bn from privatisations by the end of September and €5bn by the end of the year," said the finance minister, Evangelos Venizelos.

29/ What is the "Kubrick Stare" and what films does it occur in?
The Kubrick Crazy Stare is the term his director of photography, Doug Milsome coined - as mentioned in the Lobrutto biography. Kubrick would flash the stare when upset (sometimes joking) and apparently no one else came close to matching its intensity. If you've seen the photo accompanying the Playboy interview, that is the all time best Kubrick Crazy Stare

A good Kubrick stare can be approximated by tilting the head down so that you are staring from behind your brow line and opening your mouth to expose your bottom teeth: try to look as evil as you can.

venizelos' pluriform chin inhibits his ability to do the teeth part

It's a stare, a Kubrick stare even. But is it crazy?

you know even the posthumous humanizing documentaries with his wife and children and childhood pals talking about how much he loved them and loved life can't alter the mental image i have of this man as the coldest motherfucker who ever stepped onto a soundstage

Thought about that too but ended up figuring that he was saving all his love for his wife and kids and not giving it away like other showbiz types.

jean seberg talked about him as if he'd spent two years burning her with matches.

Don't think that too many humanizing stories about OP have emerged. Maybe he was nice to Marie Windsor once, but that was about it.

and yes, i suspect james is correct....kubrick was autocratic in the service of necessity rather than a de rigeur psycho, 'the stare' presumably became a bit of gentle self-mocking

tho you can dispute whether the endless retakes etc were necessary

sadly thread deity evangelos venizelos won't be seen much until he returns to sort on his golden horse to sort out whatever shit syriza does, but the guardian's recurrent use of this curiously lit photo is as good as a twee comedian's promotional photographs can get to the form
