Stanley Kubrick’s period epic tells the life story of a 1700s rogue with spectacular visuals and a maximum of emotional detachment.

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971)
An “ultra-violent” discussion of free will, human nature, and what it means to be good. At least, I think that’s what’s happening?
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)
Kubrick’s Science Fiction masterpiece is more of a grand artistic statement than a movie. I love it so much.
DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (1964)
A spectacular, hilarious comedy about the end of the world.
THE SHINING (1980)
A maze of a movie that may not actually have a solution, except for madness.
As epics of Roman battles go, Spartacus is the thinking-man’s version. It also helped break the Hollywood Blacklist.
