I’ve tried different iterations in the past, but I’ll be using the name “Flick City” from here on out.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Collection, a 10-disc Blu-ray set that includes new Kubrick material, on December 2.

Retailing at $199, Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Colleciton also contains the new to Blu-ray documentaries Stanley Kubrick in Focus, Once Upon a Time . . . ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and the documentaries Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures and O’ Lucky Malcolm!
Steven Spielberg, William Friedkin, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Soderbergh are among the directors interviewed in Stanley Kubrick in Focus, as they elaborate on how Kubrick influenced their filmmaking.
Last but definitely not least, the set also comes with a 78-page hardcover book which contains film archive photographs taken from Kubrick’s body of work.
