    Default Favorite Kubrick Movie

    What a legend. What's your favorite by this master? I'd personally go with Dr. Strangelove, Peter Sellers is too good.

    Barry Lyndon is primo stuff, Kubrick's answer to the movie Tom Jones.

    Sure you didn't accidentally vote for The Shining? No votes registering for Eyes Wide Shut.

    Dr. Strangelove, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, and The Shining are the ones I enjoy watching again & again. If I had to pick one, it would have to be 2001: A Space Odyssey. The casts in the other films are probably better, but the imagery and creative vision that Kubrick gives us in 2001 puts it in another class IMHO.

    My favorite is Dr. Strangelove, which coincidentally I just watched last night (again), since it was on TV: First, because I'm a huge Peter Sellers fan (who was a comic genius!), and secondly, because Sterling Haydn gives such a great & unforgettable performance, as the mad Brig. General Jack D. Ripper. It's one of the most brilliant film satires ever made, in my view, and not only timely for it's age, but unfortunately still relevant today. A great script, and Kubrick's best work.

    Brig. General Jack D. Ripper:

    "I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion, and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurity all of our precious bodily fluids."

    "It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids, without the knowledge of the individual, certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works."

    - Brig. General Jack D. Ripper: "Women uh... women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh... I do not avoid women, Mandrake."

    - Group Captain Lionel Mandrake: "No."

    - Brig. General Jack D. Ripper: "But I... I do deny them my essence."

    One of these days, I must see Dr. Strangelove. On that list, I had to give the nod to Clockwork Orange, but #2 is Full Metal Jacket. The 1st half of that movie is PURE brilliance.

    Us Brits were denied A Clockwork Orange for nearly 30 years because a couple of copycat attacks led Kubrick (who had been a British resident for over a decade by then) to arrange to have a ban slapped on it. I'd read the book by Burgess so I was keen to watch ACO to find out whether he could not just match it but stay faithful to it - I'd say he did a good job on both counts, but if one doesn't read the book first then I suppose it makes little difference.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
