Product Description

Product Description

This Special Edition box set encompasses some of Kubrick's best known and controversial titles, showcasing the late film-maker's talent. The Box Set includes: 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, Eyes Wide Shut and the documentary A Life in Pictures.

From Amazon.co.uk

To date Stanley Kubrick remains one of cinema's most controversial film-maker. This box set highlights some of his greatest work, from the visionary 2001:A Space Odyssey, the violent and highly-debated A Clockwork Orange, the chilling adaptation of The Shining, the acclaimed war drama Full Metal Jacket, to his final piece, the controversial Eyes Wide Shut. And to top it off, the treat of this box set, the fascinating Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures.

Stanley Kubrick was one of the most acclaimed and controversial filmmakers of his generation, but he was also an intensely private man who rarely gave interviews and produced most of his films under a shroud of secrecy, which tended to foster a great deal of rumour and speculation about his working methods. Jan Harlan, who worked as Kubrick's assistant and executive producer on several projects directed this feature-length documentary. Narrated by Tom Cruise, this offers a rare in-depth look into Kubrick's career as a filmmaker, structured around interviews with a number of actors, writers, technicians, composers, friends, and family who speak on the record about his relentless perfectionism, his creative vision, his life both on and off the set, his relationships with actors, his unrealised projects, and his importance and influence as an artist.

Among those who share their thoughts in Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures are actors Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Malcolm McDowell, Peter Ustinov, and Keir Dullea; writers Arthur C. Clarke and Michael Herr; special effects artist Douglas Trumbull; composers Wendy Carlos and Gyorgy Ligeti; filmmakers Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Paul Mazursky, and Sydney Pollack; and Kubrick's spouse Christiane Kubrick.

The choice of titles is undeniably spot on, and the extras really give a sense of who the man was, what his legacy is, and the privilege it was for the people who collaborated with him on his cinematic journey. -- Jennifer Kilchenmann

I was initially a little confused that all the online stores I could find were listing the Region 1 version of this box set as 10 discs and the Region 2 version as only 6 discs. Never fear though, this is indeed the full 10 Disc set that includes the same brand new special editions that are also available individually.

I am a little disappointed that the DVDs do not feature the new minimalist covers (as featured in the Region 1 version) which I think look great together as a set. Instead, we get the standard artwork for each with the new little icons featured only on the outer box itself.

Still, when you have a host of excellent new extras, proper anamorphic widescreen transfers and some of the greatest films ever made - all for under £40, you can't really complain!!

Great boxset with a bunch of valuable extra material but beware ! 3 out of 5 movies do not respect their original screen ratio : Eyes Wide Shut, Full Metal Jacket and Shining are presented as a 1:78 widescreen.
Maybe this "rectangularization" won't hurt large TV-set owners but remember that Kubrick shot them as 1:33... (which was respected on the "Collection Stanley Kubrick" DVDs by the same Warner Home Video)

So : 5/5 for the rich extras and the low price but 2/5 for this unrespect.

These are five of the greatest movies ever made, and each film is unique, original and visionary.

It's amazing how Kubrick could transfer his genius to different genres.

The documentary's also really good.

I know one reviewer has complained that other films weren't included (I would've been quite glad if I hadn't have had to buy Dr Strangelove separately), but a line has to be drawn somewhere. He says he can understand leaving out Paths of Glory and Barry Lyndon, but not Spartacus. However, many fans and critics consider Barry Lyndon and Paths of Glory to be two of Kubrick's greatest works (indeed, Paths of Glory is 43rd on the IMDB top 250, higher than all of his films except Strangelove), while it could be argued that Spartacus was more of a Kirk Douglas project than a Stanley Kubrick.

Anyway, at this price, one really can't complain about the movies selected for their 10 disc Kubrick collection.

It's also worth mentioning that the packaging is lovely.
