Stanley Kubrick Movie Reviews in Haiku Form

The Killing (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]
Like Reservoir Dogs
But with Sterling Hayden in
Harvey Keitel's role

Big-budget movie
Kubrick cannot overcome
Kirk Douglas' chin

Lolita (BD) [Blu-ray]
Stanley finds his muse
His name is Peter Sellers
Two peas in a pod

Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (Special Edition)
Iconic image
Of Slim Pickens on a bomb
Cut scenes of food fight

2001: A Space Odyssey
Ahead of its time
About 20 years ahead
The best 80s film

A Clockwork Orange
Roaming Thatcher thugs
With a love for Beethoven
Better than the book

Barry Lyndon (BD) [Blu-ray]
It's a comedy
A very slow comedy
But one nonetheless

The Shining [Blu-ray]
Released the same year 
as The Empire Strikes Back
Never had a chance

Full Metal Jacket (Deluxe Edition) [Blu-ray]
Ambitious movie
But it's best known for launching
Lee Ermey's career

Eyes Wide Shut: Special Edition [Blu-ray]
Don't believe rumors
That Keitel's scandal was hoax
It's totally true

(Spartacus / Lolita / Dr. Strangelove / 2001: A Space Odyssey /
