Product Description

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

Other Features

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible price. 8 Dec 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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 ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Stanley Kubrick film maker collection 22 Oct 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed the films I've seen so far, the picture quality was excellent in blueray HD and enjoyable to watch, all the films came in one plastic multi holder, the small amount of writing around the edge of the labels was foreign no film title that I could understand, and so I had to guess which film I had taken out of the pack by matching the label picture to the cover which named the films at the side of the pictures. The delivery was up to amazons high standard. Very pleased with my purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Value 10 Dec 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars You're getting Kubrick's best films. But... 8 Dec 2012
By MRB
Format:Blu-ray
You are getting not only Kubrick's finest, but some of the greatest films ever made in high definition and at a very reasonable price (sometimes it drops to £18, or even £15)

The highlight in terms of picture quality is '2001' - which is by far the most well-restored of the entire set. The rest are above-average. Kubrick's vivid colours and flowing cinematography are given the justice they deserve: The zooms in 'Barry Lyndon', the steady-cam shots in 'The Shining', the harsh palette of 'A Clockwork Orange', and the Christmas lights in 'Eyes Wide Shut' have never looked better. I suppose one could argue that the grain and occasional murk present in a few of the films adds to the overall effect - indeed, I much prefer a grainy film to one that's been murdered by DNR.

The packaging is not perfect. For a start, whilst the discs are well protected, they are extremely difficult to extract from the case. 'Lolita' and the bonus documentaries particularly are a struggle, and I'm actually reluctant to watch these two again simply because I'm worried about snapping the discs in two when taking them out. I've seen this kind of packaging done much better before, but I prefer it to the US version which simply slots the discs into a cardboard sleeve (which is very likely to cause long-term damage to the discs). Also, I was lucky to pick this collection up back when it came with the booklet. If you own any literature regarding Kubrick then your not missing that much, but I can see why some are disappointed that its no longer included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's try this again. 2 Feb 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I took down my first review of this product because there was no book included, which was specified on amazon's description at the time of ordering. I penalised the rating of this product for that reason, which I have since regretted.

For the value it is absolutely unbelievable. Arguably the greatest director of all time (my favourite for sure) with the majority of his best films included, all with the special features and all great transfers.

Lolita:

I'll admit, not my favourite Kubrick film but an enjoyable one nonetheless. Good Transfer

2001/ACO:

These films still look AMAZING! After multiple viewings I still find something new, they still excite and surprise me.

Barry Lyndon

Unfortunately, this underrated gem gets ONE extra which is the original trailer. Very annoying.

As for quality, a film has NEVER looked so good. I'm fairly convinced that Barry Lyndon is the best looking film ever made, and it looks even better in this transfer. Compare it with the trailer and notice how much of an improvement there is. Every frame could be a virtuoso's painting. The film, ultimately about determinism and status will seem boring to those who nothing more than a story. Dig deeper, and there's so much to enjoy.

The Shining/Full Metal Jacket/Eyes Wide Shut:

All films which have taken time for me to really love (in fact i'm only just coming around to loving EWS). All 3 look spectacular and are filled with heaps of extras.

All in all the price is amazing compared to other boxsets.

7 films which have so much detail, so much re-watchability, so much meaning it feels like each film is worth 10. To paraphrase Scorsese: It's okay that Kubrick will no longer make another film, because what we have is enough.
