They have a point of view which is expressed over and over and over again in their films, and they themselves write or have original material written for them. See more »

He then called several days later to ask Russell where he had found the lovely English locations for his period films. Russell told him and Kubrick used the locations in his next film, Barry Lyndon (1975). Russell said, "I felt quite chuffed.". See more »
