When i rented this movie i was expecting a great Kubrick film, instead a got a paced epic with little to nothing in common with Kubrick. I would have given this movie two stars, if not for the exceptional acting and revolting storyline. I now understand why Kubrick isn't proud of this movie, it does not belong to have his great name in the credits. This movie is exceptional but a let down, the scenic epic scale is the only thing holding it up.
