    Fear and Desire
    Killers Kiss
    The Killing
    Paths of Glory
    Spartacus
    Lolita
    Dr. Strangelove
    2001: A Space Odyssey

    I love the shining so much I got the original 1981 release on VHS and its georgeous!!!!!!!


    The only other movie I have seen from the list is LOLITA and to me it wasnt that good.... Kinda hard to follow and all...... (Didnt understand it really (I didnt realise that was HIS FILM!!))

    Dude, you shoud have made this a poll!

    Without question, my vote goes to "2001: A Space Odyssey", probably
    the most profound and epic sci-fi (not syfy) film ever to light up a screen.

    I like both 2001 and Dr. Strangelove, but not sure if I can pick between them. Of course I like them for different reasons.

    Based on the first act, I also like Full Metal Jacket, though I didn't like the second part as much.

    I can't pick a favorite, they are all great. I quote something from one of his movies nearly every day.

    Kubrick was the greatest.


    You also forgot one movie, some don't count , AI: Artificial Intelligence. He started it, just unfortunately died making it.

    After "2001", "Dr. Strangelove" would be my second choice -- speaking of strange, isn't it also strange
    that you and I should both like the same movies. Hmmm, perhaps we share some DNA, or our brains
    might be tuned to the same rays from deep space out beyond Pluto. Who knows... :shrug:

    I'd put A Clockwork Orange in as a three way tie.

    I've actually never seen that one, other than the milk scene.

    I think it would be 2001 for me if I had to choose one. It is one of the few scifi movies that almost gets everything right scientifically (we can't blame him or Arthur C. Clarke on being way off on where we'd be in 2001 with space travel.)

    I'd go with Dr. Strangelove or How I learned to stop worrying and love the Bomb, to use the full title, with 2001: A Space Odyssey a close second and A Clockwork Orange a close third. Not quite a 3-way tie, but perhaps a photo finish.

    I saw The Shining in a "walk-in" theater when it first came out, so that one will always stick with me, but the story and the work that went into authenticating Barry Lyndon makes it an extraordinary film achievement. He was the last of the untouchable directors and his work proves that art beats popularity hands down. He was a photographer first and there will never be another one like him.
