Stanley Kubrick

Man was THE filmmaking master and one of my favourites along with Hitchcock and Tarantino. Impossible to rank but tried anyway.

Fear and Desire- only seen the grainy copy on Google Video, Kubrick tried to destroy every copy he got his hands on
12Machine Head
Burn My Eyes

Killer's Kiss- Brilliant camera work during the fight scene but the acting is a bit wooden and the script isn't nearly as good as some of Kubrick's later work.

The Killing- I didn't really like this one too much, Elisha Cook Jr is good though.
10 System of a Down
Steal This Album

Spartacus- not technically Kubrick's film but ah well. Damn good watch but it's just not his vision or his script or sets or characters. Good film but not a good Kubrick film

Eyes Wide Shut- A strange erotic thriller, it's hypnotic, surreal and bizarre and Tom Cruise is good in it too!
8The Gaslight Anthem

Lolita- The novel that shouldn't be made into a film apparently. Yet it made a damn good one.
7Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin II

Barry Lyndon- the most visually spectacular of his films (2001 is second). Was shot by candlelight giving the film an almost hypnotic look. A little overlong though.
6Pearl Jam

The Shining- special mention to Jack Nicholson for being one of the best actors ever and for being batshit insane and owning this film completely. Also contains some of most memorable imagery of any horror film.
5Foo Fighters
Wasting Light

Paths of Glory- Kirk Douglas is brilliant as the disillusioned colonel. A great political film that asks a lot of questions about authority and morality.
4Black Sabbath
Master of Reality

Full Metal Jacket- half the film got it to 4. I joke, although R. Lee Ermey's Sgt Hartman is one of the best characters ever put on film. Second half is a good war film but it doesn't measure up to the first half.
Reign In Blood

Dr Strangelove- Every single character is brilliantly insane and memorable. Contains Peter Sellers' best 3 performances. "Yee Haw! nucl'r combat toe to toe with the Ruskies!"
2Pink Floyd

2001: A Space Odyssey- Where to start? How about the special effects that are still jaw-dropping even 45 years later. Kubrick's notorious perfectionism is on show for all to see and HAL is one of the most brilliant creations in cinema history.
Kid A

A Clockwork Orange- Latched onto by every teen sociopath and worshipped accordingly. We are supposed to see Malcolm McDowell's Alex as the murderous rapist he is but we are also supposed to see the society that caused it and tries to cope with it. We see the inner workings of a psychopath and we sympathise when society asserts too much control. Kubrick's warning to society and one of my favourite films of all time. TRY THE WINE
