One of the best boxsets around
on 17 December 2010
To my surprise I have found these three early career films by Kubrick to be highly enjoyable and yet highly professional, showing raw talent in THE KILLER'S KISS that rapidly develops into a full blown masterpiece with PATHS OF GLORY two years later. The Kubrick hallmarks of inventive and yet realistic direction, high quality acting, and impeccable photography are present in all three movies. I have to say that KILLER'S KISS was a very pleasant surprise, far better than I had expected after reading several reviews. THE KILLING is, to me, one of the best heist flicks ever and PATHS OF GLORY is a film of great humanistic value with an incredibly honest performance from Kirk Douglas.
The quality of the copy in all three films is first rate.
This boxset is great value for money - strongly recommended!
