That Stanley Kubrick maintained his mystique for nearly forty years was both a tribute to his exceptional powers as a film-maker and a consequence of his decision to live and work on his own terms, whatever the price. For decades his films have distilled the essence of the age: from Paths of Glory (1957), Lolita (1962), Dr Strangelove (1964) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) to A Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), The Shining (1980) and Full Metal Jacket (1987). With his last film (Eyes Wide Shut), Kubrick has added to the gallery of indelible images that will last as long as the cinema.
