Lolita (1962)

Humbert, a divorced British professor of French literature, travels to small-town America for a teaching position. He allows himself to be swept into a relationship with Charlotte Haze, his widowed and sexually famished landlady, whom he marries in order that he might pursue the woman's 14-year-old flirtatious daughter, Lolita, with whom he has fallen hopelessly in love, but whose affections shall be thwarted by a devious trickster named Clare Quilty.

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was also Oscar-nominated for Best Director, Art Direction and Writing. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

Commentary by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood

Barry Lyndon (1975)

Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal) is a young, roguish Irishman who's determined, in any way, to make a life for himself as a wealthy nobleman. Enlisting in the British Army and fighting in Europe's Seven Years War, Barry deserts, then joins the Prussian army, gets promoted to the rank of a spy, and becomes a pupil to a Chevalier and con artist/gambler. Barry then lies, dupes, duels and seduces his way up the social ladder, entering into a lustful but loveless marriage to a wealthy countess named Lady Lyndon. He takes the name of Barry Lyndon, settles in England with wealth and power beyond his wildest dreams, before eventually falling into ruin.

The Shining (1980)

From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. The Shining is the director's epic tale of a man in a snowbound hotel descending into murderous delusions. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere's Johnny!") stars as Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd).

Special Features:

Commentary by Steadicam inventor/operator Garrett Brown and historian John Baxter
Vivian Kubrick's Documentary The Making of the Shining with Optional Commentary
View from the Overlook: Crafting The Shining
The Visions of Stanley Kubrick and Wendy Carlos, Composer
Full Metal Jacket (1987)

A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood) and Cowboy (Arliss Howard) are some of the Marine recruits experiencing boot-camp hell under the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermy). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spiked with scathing humour.

Special Features:

Commentary by Adam Baldwin, Vincent D'Onofrio, R. Lee Ermey and critic/screenwriter Jay Cocks
Full Metal Jacket: Between Good and Evil
Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

Kubrick's daring and controversial last film is a bracing psychosexual journey through a haunting dreamscape, a riveting suspense tale and a career milestone for stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise plays a doctor who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage - and may ensnare him in a murder mystery - after his wife's (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. His graceful tracking shots, rich colours and startling images are some of the bravura traits that show Kubrick as a filmmaker for the ages.

Three-Part Documentary: The Last Movie: Stanley Kubrick and Eyes Wide Shut

Artificial Intelligence or The Writer as Robot

The best director ever IMO So much detail into every film. It is such a shame they butchered Eyes Wide Shut and cut a lot of the movie. I would have loved to have seen the movie in the way Stanley intended

R.I.P Stanley Kubrick
26 July 1928 - 7 March 1999
Died 66 days into the year 1999, also 666 days before 1 January 2001.
Agree with VoRnY on opinion of SK. Would buy these but have an old R1 DVD set from donkeys ago. Will wait until UltraHD is the norm and this set's re-re-release. Heat given anyway
bluray :-(
Excellent direction. He was the best.
Do these come with individual cases inside the box?

Do these come with individual cases inside the box?



I think so
gozomark

bluray :-(



you should get a bluray player.

you will enjoy movies a lot more than you are enjoying right now.
No individual cases unfortunately, it's one box with the discs on individual holders within.
Barry Lyndon never looked so good. Shame The Shining isn't the extended cut and shame the US version of this box set gets more films. OP you might want to edit title, its 7 movies. The bonus disc is a docu on Malcolm McDowell with no input from Kubrick. Still hot price, got this a year back. Note that the newer box sets don't come with the booklet
Amazing price for an amazing set of films. Do yourself a favour and buy!
the man was a genius - HOT!
