Happy Birthday to the Late Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - JANUARY 1: Undated file picture of US director Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick may come out of reclusion in Britain, where he has lived since 1961, to file suit in person against the satirical magazine Punch, reported 31 January the British newspaper the Independent. the notorious perfectionist filmmaker has filed suit against Punch for an unsigned jab in August issue describing him as such. "There's a thin line between artistic perfectionist and a barking loon', the magazine wrote. (Photo credit should read STF/AFP/Getty Images)

Stanley Kubrick would have been 89 years old today. Sadly, he died of natural causes on March 7th, 1999. He was 70 years old at the time of his passing.

Kubrick will always be remembered as the man who rubbed Stephen King the wrong way while crafting his vision of The Shining, which, ironically, is now considered the greatest Stephen King adaptation ever shot. But Kubrick’s accomplishments stretch far beyond The Shining.

The legendary filmmaker also shot iconic films 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and the absolutely haunting Eyes Wide Shut.

You sir, are a missed talent these days, but rest assured, your films will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace, Mr. Kubrick. May the other side be treating you as well as this earth did – you more than earned that.
