My favorite director. A very unique, very artistic, very influential, and very popular one. Choose a favorite movie of his.

2001: A Perfect Odyssey.  Everything about that movie is, essentially, perfect for my tastes.  In fact, I'm listening to the soundtrack as I type this. Thumbs Up

I haven't seen all of them, only 3 if I remember correctly. So far, 2001 is my favorite. Gotta love Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite.

Without a doubt "The Shinning." Not only is it my favorite Kubrick film, but it's also by far the greatest horror movie of all time imo.

as wonderful as all his films were, at the end of the day I think Paths of Glory has few rivals

I've only seen Dr Strangelove, Full Metal Jacket and The Shining. So out of those three...my vote goes to Dr Strangelove! Great movie. I really do have to get around to seeing 2001 and A Clockwork Orange

Bolshy Great Yarblockos to thee and thine! Do watch that Dim! We sat in the Korova Milkbar making up our rassodocks what to do with the evening. We were drinking Moloko Vellocet that would sharpen us up for the old.... ultra violence.

The Shining is my favorite movie of all time. Personal preference aside though, I think Barry Lyndon is technically his best film.

Barry Lyndon for me too even thought I think it may not be his best.

I'll have to go for The Shining. I've always loved that film.

There's a few gems there, Full Metal Jacket and 2001 most notably.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

My favourite director, but not all his movies are on my list:
  1. A Clockwork Orange (by far the best movie I seen)
  2. The Shining (The best horror movie ever)
  3. Dr. Strangelove
  4. Full Metal Jackett
  5. 2001
  6. Spartacus
  7. Barry Lyndon (Because of the photography)
  8. Eyes Wide Shut
  9. Paths of Glory
  10. Lolita

That's probably because it's a Polanski movie. Wink

Anyway, Eyes Wide Shut for me.
