Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though he hadn't made a film that was worth a damn in the 30 years leading up to his death, Kubrick continues to be the artsy darling of the film world, revered by students and critics alike. Nelson here updates his 1982 original to include Full Metal Jacket and the director's final work, Eyes Wide Shut, which flopped. In the advent of his subject's unfortunate demise, Allen also reconsiders the Kubrick canon. At the time of its debut, this title was dubbed "the best book written to date about Kubrick's films" by LJ's reviewer (LJ 4/15/82) and that no doubt remains true.
