    Ah yes... His first masterpiece what a great work of cinema!

    It's interesting, I had the same experience. After a couple of viewings, my evaluation of it has stayed constant: super awesome.

    I used to be a huge Kubrick fan several years ago. I should watch some of his movies again.

    Love '2001'. Kubrick was certainly a great artist but 'Eyes Wide Shut' was a pretty weak film. Still, most of his oeuvre is of very high artistic quality. As for Christopher Nolan, well, let's just say he's no Kubrick or even Spielberg (he's terrible). For pure, mindless entertainment I prefer James Cameron or Alfonso Cuarón.

    I date myself in that I can recall the actual lost scenes which are now in that format.
    Here's the lost ending to It's a Wonderful Life, for anyone who hasn't seen it:

    My favorite is probably Five Easy Pieces. Well, that and Duck Soup.

    My favourite used to be 'Forbidden Planet'. I think we can all learn a lot from that film - especially the "Monsters...monsters from the id!" part.
    Also: Anne Francis.

    There are so many, but I think it would have to be 'The Third Man'. The plot is so thought-provoking & gripping, the characters engaging, and the b/w photography is wonderful.
