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.

SPARTACUS (1960)

As epics of Roman battles go, Spartacus is the thinking-man’s version. It also helped break the Hollywood Blacklist.
