Hey I'm with you on 2001. If fact we gave it the same rating. Maybe someday when I'm in the mood for it I'll respond better to it.

Glad someone else agrees with me on what a masterpiece EYES WIDE SHUT is. It's also my favorite Kubrick film. And actually, 2001 is my #2 favorite Kubrick film, but I did have to see it more than one time before I decided that. :) Have you seen BARRY LYNDON? It's one Kubrick movie that doesn't seem to get much buzz, but I like it a lot.

Interesting. As much as I like Eyes Wide Shut I don't consider it his best out of the ones I've seen. Perhaps I need to revisit it.

The reverse order is correct LOL. It's funny how I've actually seen every single Kubrick movie - even Barry Lyndon, The Killing and Eyes Wide Shut in your case - being called his best work AND his worst. I think this shows the guy had a consistent career and every movie he made was a masterpiece or close to one.

Interesting list.

In my opinion, A Clockwork Orange is his best.
Posted: 2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 3 0:07
woah. we have different tastes here mate.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 11 22:57
Yeah I think you could basically reverse this list and it would be my opinion. And you definitely need Barry Lyndon and Spartacus on here.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 11 23:09
im pretty sure its hard to list them best to worst being that they are all amazing.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 12 4:51
No "Paths of Glory"? Seriously?
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 12 5:29
A Clockwork Orange is one the best movies of all time.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Dec 12 9:51
This list shows my opinion, and I only include films that I've seen. Therefore Paths of Glory, Barry Lyndon and Spartacus will not show up here until I've seen them.

Well, I don't find it beautiful, which means that I don't get why people would find it beautiful.
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at Jan 2 16:56
There is more meaning than just its beauty...It is about evolution, the progression as a species as a whole, unity, fear of our advancement in technology, how computers can sometimes outsmart us, how humans will always be able to prevail in the end, the mystery of life, trying to find the answer to one of the great mysteries of life, what is life?, what does it mean to live?, can life exist outside of our planet? Will we encounter life? What consequences will our communication with extra-terrestial or extra-solarsystemic life have, what type of communication will we have, were we created? or did we evolve? what is our purpose? to what point will we progress? will our strive and desire for technological advancement progress us or destroy us? How does solitude affect us? How will we look when we are old? What will be like when we are older?

The movie and book ask so many questions. It is meant to make you think. It is more than just an example of beauty in cinema and what you can do with cinema, it is a thought provoking masterpiece.

Now do you get it?
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at Jan 2 18:50
I understand that it raises several questions. I get that. What I don't get is why people like it. Because it asks several questions? So does the annoying five-year old kids that I sometimes encounter while getting the mail. Doesn't mean I particularly like them either.

2001 actually makes perfect sense, you just have to either:

1) Re-Watch it 1 more time (or 2. or 3. Or maybe more)
2) Read the book. It explains everything.

It is my all-time favorite film, so naturally it is my favorite Kubrick film, but other than that, good list!
