Who was Kubrick? Few people can answer that question with a certain degree of certitude. After all, Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999) was a very private person, someone who didn't give too many interviews and whose work is often defined as outstanding but ambiguous.

All the same, don't worry. The few people who really knew Kubrick, for example his family and a few close friends, helped to make "Stanley Kubrick - A Life in Pictures", an engaging documentary that tells us about his life, influences, films and odd habits. Jan Harlan, the director, was not only his longtime executive producer, but also his brother-in-law.

I certainly doubt that after watching this dvd you will have a clear picture of who Kubrick was, but I am sure you will end up knowing quite a bit more about him and his movies. Furthermore, you will enjoy watching a well-made and highly interesting documentary, that is worth both your time and your money. Heartily recommended!

What an incredible film director... had I forgotten? Did I ever even know? How has it escaped me for this long to realise how brilliant Stanley Kubrick was?

I don't think there has been a filmmaker like him and this documentary draws on an impressive list of contributors to tell this story, the story of possibly the best filmmaker who ever lived.

Yes, I know Stanley Kubrick is a film director but you have to understand his personal journey to see why he is for the very best 'film' director of all time. This documentary takes you deeply into his life with outstanding contributions from close friends and family who explain his approach to direction and cinematography. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This presentation, narrated by Tom Cruise, starts out with the standard who was Kubrick as a child. As we travel through his early life it looks like this is getting ready to be a boring standard soundbite General Information presentation.

Then the about the time they get around to explaining Stanley Kubrick through his movie "How I learned to love the bomb" we finally get the documentary that we were hoping to see. In other presentations most of these films have their own descriptions of the purpose of the films and what they are trying to say. In this presentation we get to find out what everybody thinks Stanley is trying to say; so we get to look at the same films but this time through Stanley's eyes instead of a sterile film explanation.

So what we have here is exactly what the title implies. We learn about Stanley Kubrick through his pictures and on top of the Tom Cruise narration we get information from family, colleagues, and other sources.

Whether you love or hate or are different to Kubrick you will not want to miss this well-designed informative presentation of "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures" (2001)
