Top Ten Movies Directed by Stanley Kubrick

The Top TenXW

1A Clockwork Orange

This film is one of the strangest, yet beautiful films in cinema history. All the mentioning of sex, violence, and murder provide one of the most fascinating trips of all time, even when one is not on drugs. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

so many themes, such a great performance, such a bizzarre world, and so strange how you come to feel sorry for such a monster. magically weird and brilliant

Psychologically trippy, this divisive Kubrick yarn spins a nasty web of emotions that goes into the darkness and lets you try to find your own way out. Not for the mainstream, this thought provoking film goes deep. And, for that, we thank him.

For me the best Kubrick movie.

22001: A Space Odyssey

Such an amazing film. One of the most thought-provoking films of all time. Excellent special effects, originality. Everything about it is perfect.

Better than the moon landing... Wink wink

Great effects and score, I admire it for that but... He was on drugs when making this!

Very overrated

3The Shining

So what if it's not true to the story, he made it better than the book.

Slow, vivid, grand, frightening, penetrating & disturbing in a deep, unexplainable way. Do not let this movie swallow you like it did to so many viewers. Regret I watched it.

Not only one of the greatest movies of all time, it's hands down the greatest horror movie of all time!

The greatest movie ever! No questions about that.

This should be first, this is one of the greatest war movies of all time - robertoantonioortuso

6Barry Lyndon

Probably the most beautiful movie I have ever seen. Gives a true insight into the time period, absolutely unique from any other period piece about the eighteenth century.

I would build a wall around the movie

7Paths of Glory

This is one of the best anti-war movies I've ever watched, it's surely the first great movie made by Stanley Kubrick, and deserves to be in this top 10. - andreymoutelik

8Eyes Wide Shut

Mind blowing in its subtleties and its extremities, Kubrick invites us into a world he and very few others of the elite may have known about.


Spartacus would make a much better president than obama.

10The Killing

The Contenders
