This is a thread for Stanley Kubrick (RIP) fans. He is a brilliant film director, who created films such as Lolitia, Spartacus, Dr Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut.

my favorite director of all time. as well as all those amazing movies that TRL mentioned he is also responsible for the invention of the SteadyCam. 2001 is one of the most mind-bending films i've ever seen, ambiguous to a point of becoming visual music. everyone loves full metal jacket and i'll never forget the incredible barry lyndon, a film lit entirely by natural light. spartacus is unforgettable (even though he was director in name only), and dr. strangelove is one of the smartest satires ever made. he will always be remembered for his precise direction, unforgettable imagery and his unbending handling of the actors.

Spartacus is a huge epic masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the most influential films ever made, full of beautiful visuals, symbolism and music. A Clockwork Orange is a gripping tale of free will and a daring prediction of a future with a crumbling society. The Shining is a horror classic with brilliant photography and sets, and Eyes Wide Shut is an underrated erotic thriller, shot with an odd dream-like quality.

I watched Eyes Wide Shut last night. Excellent film. I love the haunting piano tune! Just a few simple keys, yet so effective. Stanley Kubrick was a genius!

not too many people know that kubrick's true love was editing, not directing. he played a very active role in the editing process and it was one of the reasons why he shot so many miles of film.

especially before he got to do A.I. woulda been much better with him at the helm. way more of a kubrick-type story than a spielberg.
