A Kubrick film (A Space Odyssey) was the first that actually make think for days about multiple ideas. When i discovered his other films, i was amazed of how elegant they were. In spite of how awful and bleak the themes of some of them are, they are ultimately beautiful pieces of art.
Yeah! i think the Killing is better than Dr Strangelove or even A Clockwork Orange. And yes Eyes Wide Shut is above The Shining. What can I say? I like Nicole Kidman in undies better than Jack Nicholson going beserk.
