Honorable Mention

Paths Of Glory (1958) – The heartbreaking WWI story is beautifully filmed and written, and stars Kurt Douglas as a conflicted French military officer.


The Shining (1980) – This Stephen King adap holds many immortal, eerie moments as well as some top drawer acting from leads Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.


Lolita (1962) – An admirable stab at Nabokov’s brilliant, “un-filmable” novel, Kubrick captures some small piece of the novel’s depraved humor, and owes a lot to Peter Sellers’ expanded role as Clare Quilty.


The Killing (1955) – This sturdy, well-crafted noir first earned Kubrick attention and acclaim, despite not being a commercial hit. The apparentness of Kubrick’s gifts and some memorable characters help elevate this heist tale among the many others of its time.
