• Stanley Kubrick was perhaps the best filmmaker of all time
  • His death was shrouded in mystery
  • HERE is the story behind it

He was hailed as one of the greatest filmmakers of the post-war period for envelope-pushing works such as '2001: A Space Odyssey,' and 'A Clockwork Orange,' and 'Dr. Strangelove or, 'How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb'. Kubrick delivered his just-completed 13th and final feature film, 'Eyes Wide Shut' to critical acclaim.

Kubrick's movies ruffled feathers

"He created more than just movies," director Steven Spielberg, a longtime friend of Kubrick’s, said in a statement. "He gave us complete environmental experiences that got more, not less, intense the more you watched his pictures. He copied no one while all of us were scrambling to imitate him".

Also interesting:

Kubrick apparently died in his sleep and was found by his wife in their home, an old manor house on a 172-acre estate about 20 miles north of London in 1999...was it normal?
