A Clockwork Orange 40th Anniversary Edition

Lolita (1962)

Humbert, a divorced British professor of French literature, travels to small-town America for a teaching position. He allows himself to be swept into a relationship with Charlotte Haze, his widowed and sexually famished landlady, whom he marries in order that he might pursue the woman's 14-year-old flirtatious daughter, Lolita, with whom he has fallen hopelessly in love, but whose affections shall be thwarted by a devious trickster named Clare Quilty.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award®-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was also Oscar®-nominated for Best Director, Art Direction and Writing. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

Special Features:

  • Commentary by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood
  • Documentary 2001: The Making of a Myth
  • Standing on the Shoulders of Kubrick: The Legacy of 2001
  • Vision of a Future Passed: The Prophecy of 2001
  • What Is Out There?

  • Audio-only Bonus: 1966 Kubrick Interview Conducted by Jeremy Bernstein


Barry Lyndon (1975)

Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal) is a young, roguish Irishman who's determined, in any way, to make a life for himself as a wealthy nobleman. Enlisting in the British Army and fighting in Europe's Seven Years War, Barry deserts, then joins the Prussian army, gets promoted to the rank of a spy, and becomes a pupil to a Chevalier and con artist/gambler. Barry then lies, dupes, duels and seduces his way up the social ladder, entering into a lustful but loveless marriage to a wealthy countess named Lady Lyndon. He takes the name of Barry Lyndon, settles in England with wealth and power beyond his wildest dreams, before eventually falling into ruin.

The Shining (1980)

From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. The Shining is the director's epic tale of a man in a snowbound hotel descending into murderous delusions. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere's Johnny!") stars as Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd).

Special Features:

  • Commentary by Steadicam inventor/operator Garrett Brown and historian John Baxter
  • Vivian Kubrick's Documentary The Making of the Shining with Optional Commentary
  • View from the Overlook: Crafting The Shining
  • The Visions of Stanley Kubrick and Wendy Carlos, Composer

Full Metal Jacket (1987)

A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood) and Cowboy (Arliss Howard) are some of the Marine recruits experiencing boot-camp hell under the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermy). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spiked with scathing humor.

Special Features:

  • Commentary by Adam Baldwin, Vincent D'Onofrio, R. Lee Ermey and critic/screenwriter Jay Cocks
  • Full Metal Jacket: Between Good and Evil

Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

Kubrick's daring and controversial last film is a bracing psychosexual journey through a haunting dreamscape, a riveting suspense tale and a career milestone for stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise plays a doctor who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage - and may ensnare him in a murder mystery--after his wife's (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. His graceful tracking shots, rich colors and startling images are some of the bravura traits that show Kubrick as a filmmaker for the ages.

Special Features:

  • Three-Part Documentary:
  • The Last Movie: Stanley Kubrick and Eyes Wide Shut
  • The Haven/Mission Control,
  • Artificial Intelligence or The Writer Robot,
  • EWS: A Film by Stanley Kubrick

From Amazon.co.uk

The Stanley Kubrick: Visionary Filmmaker Collection is a blistering treat for anyone with a deep, longing love of the movies. It’s a pack that brings together seven films from the late, great Stanley Kubrick, spread across eight discs.

The quality of the films in question speak for themselves. There’s the 40th anniversary edition of the groundbreaking A Clockwork Orange to kick things off, and other high profile classics include 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut and Full Metal Jacket.

Yet boxsets such as these also, by their nature, champion the films that haven’t had such levels of appreciation. Thus, to get a glistening release of the likes of Lolita and Barry Lyndon is a massive bonus in itself, and goes a long way to justify the price of the set.

Some films here get more generous extra features than others, which is a shame, and there’s still quite possibly the definitive Stanley Kubrick boxset yet to be made. However, the Visionary Filmmaker Collection is still a terrific package, bringing together a clutch of important films from a genuine cinematic one-off. Quite, quite brilliant. --Jon Foster

The films are all unique and brilliant. These are the films which all sit inside the top 100 films ever made. The quality of these blu ray releases is wonderful. 2001 is the film to show to mates when they are umming and ahhing about upgrading to blu ray. the picture is sharp enough to cut the eyeballs and is truly breathtaking. Also, Lolita and Barry Lyndon were previously unavailable on blu and make their debut here. Barry Lyndon is one of my very favorite films (it also has my favorite cinematography of any Kubrick film) so I was very pleased about this, it often gets overlooked but I would personally put it a nose ahead of full metal jacket and EWS. The extras are more than enough on the discs but also included is a whole documentary which is in depth about Kubrick on disc 8. At triple the asking price it would still be a reasonable buy but at this price it is literally a steal - about £3 a film. I have many of these on DVD but at this price I just had to upgrade. If you are even slightly into Kubrick you will without a doubt come back to these films again and again. I'm not wishing to be dramatic but its a price so low its almost criminal. I saw The Shining for sale in a well known entertainment outlet last week and it was £14.99 on normal DVD with all the extras included here, that is two thirds the price of this collection which has 6 times as many films (all in High definition), a documentary and a small book!!!! Buying this at the current price is a steal and even if somehow you haven't seen all the films included just go ahead and buy it I swear you won't be disappointed.Read more ›

Format: Blu-ray
Seven films for around a fiver each - pretty good value, and that's before you consider the richness of the material within. There are not many artists I would consider geniuses in their field, but Stanley Kubrick is one. A director with an utterly unique vision, he stamped his personality all over the screen. It's worth considering that Kubrick visited a wide range of genres, most only once, and yet several of these films are regarded as undisputed classics of their kind - 2001 (sci-fi), The Shining (horror), Barry Lyndon (period drama) and so on. Kubrick famously preferred his films shot in Academy format to be presented on home video in open-matte 4:3 ratio - not without controversy as despite his liking for the squarer framing, the more recent movies were shown at the cinema matted to widescreen, and presumably shot with the wider framing in mind. For years open-matte transfers were all we had - even for 1999's "Eyes Wide Shut" - but fortunately the studio has presented the films in this set in their original theatrical widescreen ratios, or very close to. The films look great in HD, especially 2001. Audio-wise, the more recent transfers (Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon) have DTS-MA tracks, while the other films have uncompressed multi-channel PCM audio, which is wasteful of disc space but otherwise should make no difference. Don't expect much in the way of surround effects - 2001 is the most impressive, being shot in 70mm with multi-channel sound in mind, but Kubrick preferred mono for the rest of his films, up to and including Full Metal Jacket. Overall we've been well and truly spoilt with this boxset. For the price of three cinema tickets and a couple of drinks, enjoy the work of a visionary director looking the best it's ever done outside of a cinema.

Format: Blu-ray
Just received this & slightly annoyed to see it does not contain the "Limited Edition Collection" 35 page hardback booklet shown in an image at the top (I presume the inner contents are similar to the US version). The last bit of the number beginning 5000- below the barcode on the set I received is over 100000, whereas the one in the image is 99234 so 100000 may have been the cutoff point for the limited edition. Amazon is somewhat confused in its description where it mentions both "Visionary Filmmaker Collection" & "Limited Edition Collection" so you may be entitled to a full refund if you feel misled, Amazon really should be separating these into two listings. At the £18 I paid though, the set is still a bargain, barely more than buying two films separately, and its only an extra £14 or so to add the two missing films in the 10 disc collections, Dr Strangelove and Spartacus which works out between £32-£36 on current prices. Even adding £10 for the longer US version of the Shining it would only be £42-£46, compared to £90 (+VAT & import tax/post office charge, maybe slightly less if you order from Amazon.com) for the US 10 disc or £71 for the Italian 10 disc box sets (assume the booklet in that case is in Italian).

It appears that this is the European version of The Shining ('1.66:1' in width) so is a bit cropped compared to the wider American original, and also about 25 minutes shorter than the US version too. More importantly it's the DVD transfer on a blu ray disc.

It doesn't have a proper menu-screen either - it's basically been done on the cheap. The DVD-to-hires 'upscaling' on my Blu-ray player gives people's faces an almost S-VHS like appearance - ie sharpish in outline but smooth and a bit undefined in feature. It's frustrating if you are getting used to a good blu-ray image.

People are saying only 2 of these discs are genuine blu-ray his-res transfers, and the rest are DVD transfers placed onto blu-ray discs (ie the BD-ROM discs this box consists of). Is this why the whole box costs "only" 15 to 20 quid? This copy is going straight back to Amazon anyway. It's not "good value" unless you get what you think you are paying for.

All these 5 star reviews - honestly!? I was completely taken by them. Either the manufacturers have pulled a massive switch at some point, or people should be more careful before they review things on this site. The movies are good of course they are, but that's not the point is it.
