Other "Kubrick" movies.
I just saw a movie called, "Stanley Cuba". A Kubrick fanfilm.

They had so much detail about Kubrick's life and movies it was amazing. A lot of thought and passion went into this parody/fan film. They even quoted things I remember reading in the biography.

Too bad it sucked. I really wanted to like it. I can't even recommend it. I was sooo bummed out.

Next in my Netflix queue is, "The life and Death of Peter Sellers". Stanley Tucci plays Kubrick.

RE: Other "Kubrick" movies.
There's also the movie about the guy that stole Kubrick's identity for a while, starring Malkovitch - maybe you know it : "Color Me Kubrick".
It wasn't bad, with bits of Kubrick references there & there, like for example this heavy metal band that John meets whose name is "The exterminating angel", a Bunuel movie which Kubrick liked.

RE: Other "Kubrick" movies.
I saw "Kubrick's Odyssey" at a rental place in Seattle. In the Kubrick section. I considered paying full price just so that I could smash it. No offense to Jay Wiedner personally, but his hypotheses are awful and he does not deserve to have his name connected to Kubrick in such a way.

That said I don't have any "other Kubrick" movies. But I do have two books on him... which I'm stupid enough to have not read yet. And the Kubrick exhibit in LA was a pretty interesting experience too.

I find myself thinking of the Star Gate sequence while watching those colourful interludes in Punch Drunk Love. Hardly a surprise that PTA would reference Stanley really.

RE: Other "Kubrick" movies.
I saw Kafka by Mr Soderbergh yesterday, an enjoyable movie.
The story is similar to Brazil (Brazil was inspired by Kafka too, so),
and at one point, Mr Irons meets Ian Holm (Dr Murnau in the movie - Mr Kurtzmann in Brazil !),
and the doctor talks about his experiments (early MK Ultra butchery) and talks about how he uses colors.
Which also made me think of Rob's analysis of A Clockwork Orange's titles with the different background colors.
It may be a reference to MK Ultra and its color programming...
