My Favorite Kubrick Films

Here's a quick post I've been meaning to do for a while. Not really apropos of anything in particular except that I've been wanting to rewatch EYES WIDE SHUT(which I don't think I've seen since it's theatrical run). As with My Favorite Hitchock Films, the order here is always in flux. This is just how I feel right now.



1. THE KILLING.


2. DR. STRANGELOVE.


3. THE SHINING.


4. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.


5. FULL METAL JACKET.


6. BARRY LYNDON.


7. A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.


8. PATHS OF GLORY.


9. EYES WIDE SHUT.


10. LOLITA.


11. SPARTACUS.



12. KILLER'S KISS.

Fair enough, cool to see the BARRY LYNDON love. That's one of his that I feel is unjustly overlooked. Not a STRANGELOVE fan huh? I guess it was like the second film of his I saw(After CLOCKWORK) so it really hooked me.

Hmmm, let me try this one:

1. Full Metal Jacket
2. The Shining
3. Lolita
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
5. Spartacus
6. Barry Lyndon
7. A Clockwork Orange


I haven't seen the others so I don't think it's fair to judge them yet. And Barry Lyndon I haven't seen since it's original release- at which I fell asleep while watching! In a couple days I am going to a screening of it at The L.A. Cinematheque
to see it again since I think I was too young to appreciate it back then. So I have a feeling it may rise in the ranks post viewing.
