  1. So many great films from Kubrick, I’d be hard pushed to order them. Plaudits for trying! As for my personal favourite… Hmm… A different day would probably reveal a different answer but The Shining, Dr. Strangelove, 2001 and The Killing would all be vying for number one.

  2. Interesting choices from you as well for your number one favorite Kubrick film 🙂 As with Yojimbo (from my Kurosawa post), Lolita is another film that was introduced on Moviedrome by Alex Cox 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  3. My favorite Kubrick film is Clockwork Orange. Then The Killing, Spartacus, and The Shining. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t seen Dr. Strangelove. It’s one of those that I know I should see but, for some strange reason, I avoid. Same thing with 2001…yeah, I know, it’s my husband’s favorite film.

  4. A Clockwork Orange is a great film as is The Killing and The Shining. For me, Spartacus can’t help but feel like a director-for-hire job (original director Anthony Mann was replaced I believe at last minute with Kubrick). Nevertheless, it is visually impressive. Dr. Strangelove is a pure masterpiece as is 2001: A Space Odyssey. Speaking of that last title, 2001: A Space Odyssey just recently celebrated it’s 50th anniversary. If those two films are not your cup of tea though, that is understandable 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  5. Yes, I always thought Spartacus was out of his wheelhouse–way different from anything else he did–now I know why. I like it though, better than Gladiator in my opinion. I think I am a little intimidated by “2001” and Dr. Strangelove–that’s probably why I haven’t watched them.
