Product Description

Product Description

The collection features the film and bonus content from A Clockwork Orange 40th Anniversary Edition, the Blu-ray debuts of Lolita and Barry Lyndon, as well as the feature films 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut.

A Clockwork Orange 40th Anniversary Edition

Causing major controversy when first released, the film garnered four Academy Award® nominations--Best Picture, Best Director, Best Film Editing and Best Screenplay--and is #4 on AFI's Top 10 List of Best Science Fiction films of all-time.

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?
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey Conceptual Artwork
  • Look: Stanley Kubrick!
  • 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

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.

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 ›

If this was twice the money I'd still recommend. Sure, this set may not include some of Kubrick's earlier work (*cough* Dr. Strangelove *cough*). But the fact is that it DOES include 7 of his certified masterpieces, all on blu ray, in one set. This is great for those who've been aching too see these films in HD and for those who want to get into Kubrick's films for the first time; and to be honest they're aren't many better ways see these films. I haven't seen a single film in this set that I didn't love or at least appreciate its beauty or their acting prowess. If you love Kubrick or just love films in general; this is an absolute steal!

This is a fantastic deal for a fantastic box set but sadly the fact that it no longer comes with the hardback book does disappoint me but it's still very good.

I bought this set just for 2001. For the price, that alone on Blu Ray would be a bargain. Those that complain that we don't get as much as the USA are missing the point. It's still an absolute and unmissable banging bargain!

Kubrick's films are finally given a blu ray set to be proud of. The discs come in a flip style amaray blu-ray case (like the Alien Anthology replacement), and nice hardback book with info on each film, which both slide nicely into a hardback slipcase. The way the discs are stored in an amaray case may seem a bit cheap but is actually not only more protective for the discs but makes them easier and quick to access. This is a better style than the American boxset which may come in a more aesthetically pleasing book style, but to remove the disc for that you need to physically tocuh the bottom shiny side of the disc, and edge it out, which has been reported can lead to scratches.

The set contains the last seven Kubrick films. The American release gets Spartacus and Dr Strangelove aswell, but as Kubrick was brought on as a director without preperations for the former, and the latter film being a satirical comedy and thus not necessarily as deep and artistic as his later work, this is no big problem. The transfers are mostly great, the two best would be 2001 and The Shining.

The special features for each disc are identical to previous releases, with a few new additions here and there. The two blu ray debutees, Lolita and Barry Lyndon, only contain theatrical trailers. However the set does include the documentary Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures a two hour chronicle of the incredible filmmaker.

Overall this is an essential purchase for any film or especially Kubrick fan, even more so if you only own a couple of the Kubrick blu-rays and want to experience more great films from this truly visionary filmmaker.
