Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 49 ratings.
I know it's not the definitive collection of Kubrick's work, nor will it be the last "Special edition" of any of the movies contained herein, however the price I paid ($29.99 - special offer) was unbeatable, and for that price I am happy to display it prominently on my shelf with some of my other box sets. It contains two of my all time favorite Kubrick films, my girlfriend's favorite, and two that we can watch together and discuss and critique. Plenty of extra features, and I can finally see the closest approximation to the actual SCREEN versions of the film, even though Kubrick shot them in full frame, he did exhibit them matted, and I've been dying to see that vision for many years.
