Stanley Kubrick is arguably the best filmaker. Many people liked this last movie, and some didn't. It was nominated for an oscar, a lot of people don't think it should be, only a select few true critics like the movie as much as me. The movie however is one of Kubricks best, it blends an amazing script with an even better cast, and Kubrick's directing is at it's best. This movie reminds me of Kubrick's other masterpeices Dr. Strangelove, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, and his early Lolita. Kubrick did an excellent job, this movie deserved the 1999 oscar for diricting, picture still goes to American Beauty.

Each time I view this film I perceive another layer of complexity. This is a film that will "grow on you"--if you give it a chance.

To tell the truth about anything slightly uncomfortable, Kubrick always had to turn to to an analogy or a fictional form. What he shows in this movie is the dirty truth of the underside of humanity that attempts to rule any and all while remaining right in front of us but clearly invisible to all but the initiated or someone with a trained eye for the power and lust of evil even when disguised as the most wealthy, powerful and prominent people. No wonder he "died suddenly" before it was finished. It makes you wonder what was so overpowering in the 25 minutes of the movie he made that caused the studio to cut those scenes from ever being released.

I never really understood this movie, until I got married. Now that I am married this film makes perfect sense to me. It is the story of doubt. In the Bible Jesus talks about having faith the size of a mustard seed. In this movie Stanly Kubrick illustrates how doubt of any size can enter and monopolize a man soul. Truly a remarkable film! (Did not understand it at all until I got married.)
