This US edition contains two films - Spartacus and Dr Strangelove - that are not included in the UK/European edition.
A fantastic set that shows why Kubrick is rightly regarded as the greatest filmmaker working in the English language in the 20th century.

This set although Essential is excellent, but with one (& it is only one gripe-Spartacus is in its "older" 4x3 Ratio on a 2:35:1 Ratio movie, also making that dvd largely redundant framing on Dvd even three years ago.
That issue aside, Any Kubrick set is worth having as he produced some amazing films: Dr Strangelove. Brilliant, Warped and still relevant.
2001-a near future that never was but should have been and Clockwork orange, again all to relevant, and eerily prophetic, The maligned Barry Lyndon, the USA version of the shining (25 minutes longer) and still scary, Full metal jacket look Iooking at Vietnam but also still anticipating further close quarter fighting and his largely misunderstood EWS. Intriguing and dreamlike all. Amazing.
