Disc 1 – _Lolita (1962)_ Humbert (James Mason), a divorced British professor of French literature,travels to small-town America for a teaching position. He allows himself to beswept into a relationship with Charlotte Haze, his widowed and sexuallyfamished landlady, whom he marries in order that he might pursue the woman’s14-year-old flirtatious daughter, Lolita, with whom he has fallen hopelesslyin love, but whose affections shall be thwarted by a devious trickster namedClare Quilty. Disc 2 -_ Dr. Strangelove_ _or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb_ _(1964)_ The cold war satire is a chilling dark comedy about a psychotic Air ForceGeneral unleashing an ingenious, foolproof and irrevocable scheme sendingbombers to attack Russia, as the U.S. President works with the Soviet premierin a desperate effort to save the world. The film stars Peter Sellers, inmultiple roles, as well as George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden. _ _ Disc 3 -_ 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)_ Kubrick’s dazzling Academy Award-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects)is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of manvs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was alsoOscar-nominated for Best Director, Art Direction and Writing. The director(who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits theprehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronautBowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality. Disc 4 -_ A Clockwork Orange_ (1971) Causing major controversy when first released, the film garnered four AcademyAward nominations – Best Picture, Best Director, Best Film Editing and BestScreenplay. The film also introduced into popular culture the concept of”ultra-violence,” as singing, tap-dancing, derby-topped hooligan Alex (MalcolmMcDowell) has a “good time” – at the tragic expense of others. His journeyfrom amoral punk to brainwashed proper citizen and back again forms thedynamic arc of Kubrick’s future-shock vision of Anthony Burgess’ novel. Disc 5 -_ Barry Lyndon (1975) _ Redmond Barry (Ryan O’Neal) is a young, roguish Irishman who’s determined, inany way, to make a life for himself as a wealthy nobleman. Enlisting in theBritish Army and fighting in Europe’s Seven Years War, Barry deserts, thenjoins the Prussian army, gets promoted to the rank of a spy, and becomes apupil to a Chevalier and con artist/gambler. Barry then lies, dupes, duels andseduces his way up the social ladder, entering into a lustful but lovelessmarriage to a wealthy countess named Lady Lyndon (Marisa Berenson). He takesthe name of Barry Lyndon, settles in England with wealth and power beyond hiswildest dreams, before eventually falling into ruin. Disc 6 -_ The Shining (1980)_ From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vividperformances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock aftershock into a milestone of the macabre. _The Shining_ is the director’sepic tale of a man in a snowbound hotel descending into murderous delusions.In a signature role, Jack Nicholson (“Heeeere’s Johnny!”) stars as JackTorrance, who’s come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-seasoncaretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd). Disc 7 -_ Full Metal Jacket (1987)_ A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick’s brilliant saga about theVietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trainedkillers. The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Awardfor 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 hellunder the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Sergeant Hartman (R. LeeErmy). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spikedwith scathing humor. Disc 8 -_ Eyes Wide Shut (1999)_ Kubrick’s daring and controversial last film is a bracing psychosexual journeythrough a haunting dreamscape, a riveting suspense tale and a career milestonefor stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise plays a doctor who plunges intoan erotic foray that threatens his marriage – and may ensnare him in a murdermystery – after his wife’s (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the storysweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrickorchestrates it with masterful flourishes. His graceful tracking shots, richcolors and startling images are some of the bravura traits that show Kubrickas a filmmaker for the ages. Disc 9 -_ Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures / O’ Lucky Malcolm!_ _ _ _Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures_ Stanley Kubrick’s career comes into sharp focus in the compelling andrevealing documentary narrated by Tom Cruise. A detailed picture of thecinematic legend emerges via fascinating footage of Kubrick in his earlyyears, at work on film sets and at home, and via candid commentary fromcollaborators, colleagues, and family. From the music he chose to the camerashe used to his unrealized projects (including A.I. Artificial Intelligence,the much- anticipated Kubrick project directed by Steven Spielberg), you’lluncover a treasure trove of film-buff information. Drawing on Kubrickarchives, it offers for the first time a truly intimate portrait of his lifeamong family and friends. There has never been a more essential visualcompanion piece to the man and his movies. _ _ _O’ Lucky Malcolm! _Documentary about the life and career of actor Malcolm McDowell producedand directed by Jan Harlan. _ _ Disc 10 -_ Kubrick Remembered / Stanley Kubrick in Focus / Once Upon a Time A Clockwork Orange_ _ _ _Kubrick Remembered – NEW _A new look into the Kubrick archives, with special appearances byChristiane Kubrick. Featuring never-seen footage of Stanley’s works, his houseand his film production facilities. _Stanley Kubrick in Focus – NEW to Blu-ray _Spielberg, Soderbergh, Stone, Friedkin, Scorsese and others tell howKubrick’s directorial style influenced them and how his unique style wasdeveloped. _Once Upon a Time A Clockwork Orange – NEW to the U.S._ Co-written by critic Michel Ciment and featuring interviews with apsychologist and a sociologist, _Once Upon a Time ‘A Clockwork Orange’_ is awonderfully unusual cine-documentary that focuses more on the titular movie’shistorical context and philosophy than on its production and reception. Thedocumentary benefits from archival audio commentary by the late StanleyKubrick, who offers his rationale for making the controversial, devilishlyprescient proto-punk cult classic: “Better to reign in hell than serve inheaven.”
