Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures

Stanley Kubrick was a brilliant perfectionist who sought to make bold and often controversial statements on film. His films were not only intelligent and artistically minded, but appealed to audiences which enabled him to make them at his own pace and in conjunction with his reclusive lifestyle leaving much of his life and what he left up on the screen remains a mystery (see the recent Room 237 for the kind of following a movie of his could inspire). A Life in Pictures offers an in-depth look at the man and an analysis of his work, as told by family members, friends, and collaborators, and goes so much deeper than many of the recent profiles where celebrities will laud their subject and not delve any further.
