Stanley Kubrick

Born in New York City in 1958, Stanley Kubrick is one of the most acclaimed filmmakers of all time. After spending some time with his uncle in California, he returned to the Bronx where he developed a passion for chess. But his main interest, as a teenager, was photography. Kubrick began his career as a photographer, and only became interested in making movies in the 50s, when he taught himself how to shoot films.

After shooting a few shorts, Stanley Kubrick made Fear and Desire, his feature debut. Then came Paths of Glory (1957), Spartacus (1960), Lolita (1962). In the 60s, he made two of his most acclaimed movies: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. In the 70s came A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon, and the 80s brought The Shining and Full Metal Jacket. Stanley Kubrick’s last film was Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
