This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to human error

Fans of Kubrick (ahem) and 2001: A Space Odyssey get ready for a big day: October 23, 2007 – the release of the Director Series: Stanley Kubrick Collection as a box and individual titles consisting of two disc versions of my all-time favorite movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, plus The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, Eyes Wide Shut, and one disc versions of Full Metal Jacket and the Kubrick documentary, A Life In Pictures, all with beautiful new packaging (unlike the current versions which are pretty naff). The titles will also be available separately on that day, and you can bet your ass I’ll be getting 2001: A Space Odyssey – but I’ll be tempted to get the whole box for The Shining and A Clockwork Orange as well, since it’ll be cheaper that way (and I’m sure the doc is very interesting.) No details as to what is on the second disc of those sets, since Kubrick is known to have left very little extra material behind for his films – what was released to theaters is it.



  1. Well fuck.

    I already own the box set (I bought it in the year 2001!). Do I have to buy them all over again? Well…maybe just 2001. And Clockwork Orange. And…fuck!

    You’re right, though. What on earth could the extras be?

    If you’ve never seen A Life In Pictures, you’re missing out…a fantastic documentary.

  2. Yeah, I’m kind of thinking that the box might wind up on my Christmas list just to get the three I really want and the doc, which I’ve never seen but have heard much about.
