Stanley Kubrick always wanted “interesting” from his actors, especially his supporting actors. That tended to translate into behavior that most of us would call quirky, twitchy, peculiar, eccentric, heavily mannered, etc. Hands down, HE’s all-time favorite quirk-freak-twitch performance in a Kubrick film came from Alan Cumming in Eyes Wide Shut. Second favorite: a Clockwork Orange tie between Michael Bates, who played an officious, extremely uptight prison guard, and Aubrey Morris as “P.R, Deltoid”. Third favorite: Murray Melvin as Reverend Samuel Runt in Barry Lyndon.
