Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" review published in Film Comment, September/October 1998. By Robert Castle and Stephen Donatelli
Unquestionably one of the most highly anticipated films of modern times due to its high-powered talent combo, protracted and secrecy-enshrouded shoot, rumored racy content

Raccolta di recensioni italiane pubblicate in occasione della riedizione del film di Stanley Kubrick 'Arancia meccanica' nel 1998
I am not certain what it means to call Stanley Kubrick's The Shining "the first epic horror film," as the ads are quoting Jack Kroll of Newsweek, but surely it is one of the strangest of them.
Full Metal Jacket certainly isn’t what we expect a Vietnam movie to be. Then again, it’s only secondarily a movie about the war. First and foremost, this is a Kubrick movie

Stanley Kubrick, once again leaves his audiences asking a familiar question: How can anyone make a film so fastidiously beautiful and still leave so many loose ends?

Il caso di 2001: A Space Odyssey, film di enorme successo e di enorme sfortuna, è uno dei più clamorosi. Tanti furono i sofismi che ne accolsero l’uscita da indurre lo stesso Stanley Kubrick a fornire, un poco infastidito, la sua semplice spiegazione
