It was Stanley Kubrick’s birthday yesterday. I just wanted to note this as his film: 2oo1 A Space Odyssey is, in my humble opinion, one of the best films ever made and Kubrick one of the all-time best directors.
Stanley Kubrick (July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999). Although he was nominated for an Academy Award as a screenwriter and director on several occasions, his only personal win was for the special effects in 2oo1 A Space Odyssey. (From Wikipedia).
