The Killing - A meticulously planned racetrack heist, a film noir directed by a very young Stanley Kubrick at the very beginning of his career.
Stanley Kubrick received critical acclaim and commercial success with Paths of Glory a powerful story of the trench warfare of World War I and three soldiers falsely accused of cowardice.
Quick name a Stanley Kubrick movie . . . We bet no one said Spartacus. That's probably because even though its a great movie about a slave revolt in ancient Rome, Stanley Kubrick was brought in as director at the last minute and was frustrated by his lack of creative control. After the movie was completed he left Hollywood for England and never returned.
As beautiful as any piece of art, 2001: A Space Odyssey has spawned forty years of discussion, speculation and debate and established Stanley Kubrick as a genius at provocative film making.
The Shining - Unlike directors who work in one genre, Stanley Kubrick was not afraid to mix it up. His foray into horror produced a very scary movie.
A movie that's maybe too harsh for our gentle sensibilities, but the critics loved it and so if its a Viet Nam war movie you're looking for we must put Full Metal Jacket on the list
