    Hold Onto Your Precious Bodily Fluids
    Stanley Kubrick didn’t just make movies, he pursued visions. He never cared much for accommodating Hollywood stars; he wanted to involve them in galaxies heavy enough to absorb everything—including you, dear viewer. For the most part, he succeeded. His films glide within their genres like sharks among anchovies. “The Killer’s Kiss” and “The Killing” both honor and defy film noir. “Spartacus” is the toga movie of toga movies. “Lolita” and “Eyes Wide Shut” are ambitious (if flawed) attempts to use film to think seriously about sex. People who don’t like science fiction or horror movies still like (or pretend to like) “2001,” “A Clockwork Orange,” and “The Shining.” “Barry Lyndon” is Masterpiece Theater worthy of that label. And “Paths of Glory,” “Dr. Strangelove,” and “Full Metal Jacket” are perfect depictions of the collective insanity of war, both hot and cold.
