Collection of seven films directed by Stanley Kubrick and a documentary focused on his career. In 'Lolita' (1962), Kubrick's adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's controversial masterpiece, Humbert Humbert (James Mason) is a fastidious, middle-aged British novelist who is both appalled by and attracted to the vulgarity of American culture. When he comes to stay at the boarding house run by Charlotte Haze (Shelley Winters) he soon becomes obsessed with Lolita (Sue Lyon), the woman's teenaged daughter. In fact, his passion for the girl becomes so overwhelming that he is willing to accept Charlotte's intimations of marriage in order to be close to her daughter. Humbert then plots to spend more time alone with Lolita, but his obsessive pursuit soon leaves all their lives damaged. In '2001 - A Space Odyssey' (1968), at the dawn of mankind, a tribe of ape-like beings are visited on Earth by a large black monolith. Thousands of years later, in the year 2001, scientist Dr Heywood Floyd (William Sylvester) discovers a similar black monolith on the moon, which then emits a signal aimed at the planet Jupiter. A year later, astronauts Dr David Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Dr Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) are en route to Jupiter to investigate the signal's destination and purpose. However, their mission comes under threat when their ship's sentient computer, HAL (voice of Douglas Rain), seemingly develops a malfunction. In 'A Clockwork Orange' (1971) Malcolm McDowell stars as sadistic teen Alex DeLarge. Set in dystopian England, Alex is the leader of a small gang he calls his 'droogs'. Following a night of extreme violence the droogs voice their dissatisfaction with Alex's leadership and the subsequent fall-out eventually leads to his arrest. After two years of incarceration Alex behaves without fault and is selected to take part in a series of experiments designed to rid him of his violent tendencies. However, the attempted rehabilitation creates a new set of problems. In 'Barry Lyndon' (1975) Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal) is an Irish country boy who falls in love with well-to-do local girl Nora Brady (Gay Hamilton) and is subsequently tricked by her family into leaving town. Disillusioned with love, the broken-hearted youngster then embarks on an adventure which sees him serve in the Seven Years War, earn a living as a professional gambler, and eventually move into the higher ranks of society when he meets and marries the beautiful Lady Lyndon (Marisa Berenson). However, despite the luck which has brought him such riches, it is this final move, the cynical choice to marry for social advancement rather than love, which brings about Barry's downfall. In 'The Shining' (1980) Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) seeks solitude in order to write a novel and takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the remote Overlook Hotel in Colorado. Eager to get started, Jack disregards warnings that the isolation drove a former caretaker mad, and moves into the massive resort with his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd). But Danny has a supernatural gift which makes him aware of an evil lurking in the hotel, and as winter storms cut the hotel off from civilisation, Jack gradually becomes murderously insane. 'Full Metal Jacket' (1987) details the dehumanizing effect of military combat and follows a platoon of Vietnam conscripts as they join the US Marines and undergo rigorous boot camp training overseen by sadistic drill instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermey). Upon graduating, one of the recruits, Joker (Matthew Modine), is thrown into the war at the height of the Tet Offensive. In 'Eyes Wide Shut' (1999) Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman star as married couple William and Alice. One night, returning home from a party, Alice confesses that she still has fantasies about a sailor she once knew. William is shocked and jealous, and when he is later called away on business, he finds it impossible to return home, embarking instead on a journey into an illicit underworld of prostitution and sexual debauchery. Finally, the documentary 'Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures' (2001) explores the making of each of his films and features interviews with his collaborators.
