2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY A space mission that could reveal man’s destiny is jeopardized by a malfunctioning shipboard computer. A dazzling journey that tops them all – and showed the way for other effects-packed films that followed.
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE A jolting tale of crime and punishment stars Malcolm McDowell as a young neo-punk who becomes the guinea pig for a state-sanctioned cure of his tendency toward “the old ultraviolence.”
EYES WIDE SHUT Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman star in “a brilliantly provocative tour- de-force” (The New York Times). A wife’s admission of unfulfilled longings plunges a Manhattan doctor into a bizarre erotic odyssey.
FULL METAL JACKET Marine recruits endure basic training under a leather-lunged D.I., then plunge into the hell of Vietnam. Matthew Modine heads a talented ensemble in this searing look at a process that turns people into killers.
THE SHINING “Heeeeere’s Johnny!” In a macabre masterpiece adapted from Stephen King’s novel, Jack Nicholson falls prey to forces haunting a snowbound mountain resort with a macabre history.
Bonus Disc – STANLEY KUBRICK: A LIFE IN PICTURES The moviemaker’s career comes into sharp focus in this compelling documentary narrated by Tom Cruise. Fascinating footage glimpses Kubrick in his early years, at work on film sets and at home, augmented by candid commentary from collaborators, colleagues and family.

|Stanley Kubrick - Director|
A fantastic set of half of Kubrick's oeuvre10/18/2011
These are all brilliant, beautiful, thought-provoking and entertaining films, presented in deluxe editions. Kubrick films equally worthy, but not part of this package, include Dr Strangelove, Lolita, and my personal favorite, Barry Lyndon. Still, if you don't already own Kubrick's collected works, this is a great start - at a great price. PS The film "STANLEY KUBRICK: A LIFE IN PICTURES" is also very informative and entertaining.
