Storyline

He is considered by many the greatest film director the medium has ever known. Yet in a 45-year career, Stanley Kubrick's films number only a dozen. That he strove for perfection is well established. What is less known is that he lavished years of energy on several films that never saw the flickering light of the silver screen. Through interviews and abundant archival materials, this documentary examines these "lost" films in depth to discover what drew Kubrick to these projects, the work he did to prepare them for production, and why they ultimately were abandoned.

Lost Kubrick: The Unfinished Films of Stanley Kubrick (2007)

*** (out of 4)

Malcolm McDowell narrates this interesting documentary covering the two movies that were high on Kubrick's wish list to make but circumstances would prevent him from doing so. After the success of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, Kubrick got to pick his next project and his selected the story of Napoleon. This included years worth of research but all of this would be put away after WATERLOO would be released and not bring in much money. Kubrick's second project was a Holocaust documentary that he started preparations on but it too would be put away after the release of SCHINDLER'S LIST. The 20-minute film gives one a pretty good idea of why Kubrick would want to make these two films but at the same time his demanding will of wanting more and more research would eventually cause both films to be dropped. One can't help but wish Kubrick had gotten to make both films but at the same time it's easy to see why others would take the subject and beat him to the screen. I'm not sure if a second Holocaust picture would have sat well with people so you can see why Kubrick would leave the project and move onto EYES WIDE SHUT. According to rumor there were a couple other projects that the director looked at but they're not mentioned here.
