In this new interpretation of Kubrick's films, Julian Rice suggests that the director's work had a more positive outlook than most people credit him. Beginning with 2001: A Space Odyssey and continuing through A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut, Rice illuminates Kubrick's thinking at the time he made each film.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Blow-by-blow description of the complexities of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Eyes Wide Shut helps uncover the Jungian sources of Kubrick's perspective. * Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie *
Rice writes about the films with care and specificity. Kubrickians should read this book, whether or not they agree with it....Recommended. * CHOICE *
This fresh interpretation, which runs counter to much of the scholarship on Kubrick, is informed by Rice's deep knowledge of the filmmaker's work. Erudite and wide ranging, his book considers the full scope of literary, philosophical, and psychological influences that give meaning to Kubrick's films....Recommended for film collections in academic and public libraries. * Library Journal *
