Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures (2001)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

The Man

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Directed by Jan Harlan, a producer on Kubrick's last four films and brother of Kubrick's widow, Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures is the official documentary on the great filmmaker. It spends most of its running time looking into his works, but also a decent amount of time finding out who the man really was. This documentary will be a revelation for most people, in that most of us didn't even know what Kubrick looked like until just a few years ago. And back in 1987 when I saw Full Metal Jacket, I couldn't have even told you if he was American or European. A Life in Pictures is a most welcome documentary. "Everyone pretty much acknowledges that he's the man," Jack Nicholson says, "and I still feel that underrates him."
