This amazing box set contains Director Stanley Kubrick's greatest films.
2001: A Space Odyssey
To begin his voyage into the future, Kubrick visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever conceived) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted realms of space, perhaps even into immortality. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” Let the awe and mystery of a journey unlike any other begin.
For this ravishing, slyly satiric winner of 4 Academy Awards®, Kubrick found inspiration in the works of the era's painters. Costumes and sets were crafted in the era's designs and pioneering lenses were developed to shoot interiors and exteriors in natural light. The result? Barry Lyndon endures as a cutting-edge movie that brings a historical period to vivid screen life like no other film before or since.
A Clockwork Orange
Stomping, whomping, stealing, singing, tap-dancing, violating. Derby topped teddy-boy hooligan Alex (Malcolm McDowell) has his own way of having a good time. He has it at the expense of others.
Eyes Wide Shut
Cruise plays Dr. William Harford, who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage – and may even ensnare him in a lurid 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. Graceful tracking shots, controlled pacing, rich colors, startling images: bravura trails that make Kubrick a filmmaker for the ages are here to keep everyone's eyes wide open.
Full Metal Jacket
A superb ensemble cast falls in for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. Joker, Animal Mother, Eightball, Cowboy, and more – are all plunged into a boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. Who views the would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less.
Newly arrived in Ramsdale, New Hampshire, European émigré Humburt Humbert is smitten. He plans to marry Charlotte Haze. That way he'll always be close to his dear one – Charlotte's precocious daughter!
Think of the greatest terror imaginable. Is it a monstrous alien? A lethal epidemic? Or, as in this harrowing masterpiece from Stanley Kubrick, is it fear of murder by someone who should love and protect you – a member of your own family?
