"Alexander Walker's Stanley Kubrick, Director, first published in 1971, is the only book ever written with Kubrick's cooperation. This new edition, revised and expanded to include every Kubrick film from A Clockwork Orange to Full Metal Jacket to Eyes Wide Shut - the just-released erotic thriller starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman - again received the approval of the reclusive director, who before his death allowed the use of illustrations taken directly from his films' frames." "In addition to being fully authorized, Stanley Kubrick, Director is a dissection of how Kubrick conceived, shot, and created his films, as well as a frame-by-frame examination of the inimitable style that infuses every Kubrick movie, from the pitch-perfect hilarity of Lolita to the icy supremacy of 2001: A Space Odyssey to the baroque horror of The Shining."--Jacket
