In my opinion this is Kubrick's most misunderstood work. Critics at its release were put off by the lack of emotional drama and perceived sterility, especially when compared to Platoon. Today's critics call it a masterpiece (it gets a 94% at Rotten Tomatoes) for its "innocence lost" and human duality themes
HAL's lookin' at you, kid.
Steve's favorite films, analyzed. He is a huge Stanley Kubrick fan, so that's the focus.
