1. The Decalogue (1989)

I am always reluctant to single out some particular feature of the work of a major filmmaker because it tends inevitably to simplify and reduce the work. But in this book of screenplays by Krzysztof Kieslowski and his co-author, Krzysztof Piesiewicz, it should not be out of place to observe that they have the very rare ability to dramatize their ideas rather than just talking about them. By making their points through the dramatic action of the story they gain the added power of allowing the audience to discover what's really going on rather than being told. They do this with such dazzling skill, you never see the ideas coming and don't realize until much later how profoundly they have reached your heart. - Stanley Kubrick

2. Heimat: A Chronicle of Germany (1984)

With Heimat, the probably most ambitious project in post-war German film history, Edgar Reitz became one of Stanley Kubrick's favorite film directors... the attention to detail and the amazing long narrative breath of the almost 1000 minute long film roused Kubrick's admiration. He saw all of it in his private movie theater and hung his favorite film still (of Maria's coffin on the rainy street in Schabbach) over his desk. (source)

3. Heimat II: A Chronicle of a Generation (1992)


Stanley Kubrick died before the completion of Heimat 3; I suppose he would have loved the film.

8. Roseanne (1988)

...he loved Roseanne, because it was funny and, he believed, the most authentic view of the country you could get without actually living there. - Michael Herr (co-writer of Full Metal Jacket)


 

I'd be grateful if you know of other shows or mini-series Stanley Kubrick liked.

Acccording to this Vanity Fair article, Stanley Kubrick was 'crazy about' Seinfeld and The Simpsons.
