Narrated by Tom Cruise, "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures" goes through each one of his movies and talks to various participants about their memories of working with Kubrick. For those who know very little about Kubrick, the documentary is an excellent career overview. Kubrick film clips include "Fear and Desire," "Killer's Kiss," "The Killing," "Paths of Glory," "Spartacus," "Lolita," "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb," "2001: A Space Odyssey," "A Clockwork Orange," "Barry Lyndon," "The Shining," "Full Metal Jacket" and "Eyes Wide Shut." Those appearing include: Arthur C. Clarke, Keir Dullea, Shelley Duvall, James B. Harris, Richard Schickel, Michael Herr, Nicole Kidman, Anya Kubrick, Christiane Kubrick, Gert Kubrick, Katharina Kubrick, Paul Mazursky, Jack Nicholson, Malcolm McDowell, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Douglas Trumbull, Marie Windsor, Matthew Modine, Sydney Pollack and Peter Ustinov.


The documentary is fun and intriguing. There are dozens of interviews – all quite new, i.e. filmed after Kubrick's death – including comments from the rarely-heard-from Ligeti, Ustinov, Duvall, Frewin, etc. – and of course Kubrick's own family. We hear many funny (and sad, and strange) stories about Kubrick never mentioned in any biography; we see home movies never before seen by the public; we see excerpts from a 1968 documentary showing behind-the-scenes work on 2001, and countless photos and film clips taken during the shooting of Kubrick's other films; commentary on his films by a number of directors; dozens of images of Kubrick as a kid; the list is almost literally endless. "There wasn't really anything 'new' in the movie?" Sure.
