When Stanley Kubrick first sold a photograph, at the age of 17, he had already begun telling stories through pictures. Without any formal education in film-making, he taught himself to make films through photography and by spending many hours in his local cinema. At 21 he financed and created his own short film, "Day of the Fight", thus beginning a controversial cinema career that has incorporated films such as "Dr Strangelove", "A Clockwork Orange" and "2001: A Space Odyssey". This detailed biography of Kubrick includes interviews with people who knew him during his formative years, as well as accounts by professional colleagues.

In 1962, an MGM trailer teased its audience by asking "How Did They Ever Make a Movie Out of Lolita?" Readers of this book, which recounts the life of Lolita's director, might ask, "How Did They Ever Write a Biography of Stanley Kubrick?" Kubrick is the most reclusive of celebrities, a man who seems mysterious even to those who have known and worked with him. Vincent Lobrutto's engrossing and beautifully researched biography succeeds in tracing this meticulous and brilliant visionary from his childhood and early career as a photographer for Look magazine to his creation of masterpieces such as Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and Full Metal Jacket. Lobrutto concludes his book by discussing projects that have not yet been realized: Eyes Wide Shut, a film about sexual obsession, the Holocaust drama Aryan Papers, and the most eagerly awaited of Kubrick's prospective movies, the science fiction film A. I.From the Back Cover:
Stanley Kubrick, director of the acclaimed films Paths of Glory, Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Full Metal Jacket, is arguably the greatest American filmmaker alive. Yet, despite being hailed as "a giant" by Orson Welles, little is known about this reclusive director. Stanley Kubrick -- the first full-length study of his life -- is based on assiduous archival research as well as new interviews with friends, family, and colleagues.
Film scholar Vincent LoBrutto provides a comprehensive portrait of the director, from his high school days in the Bronx and his stint as a photographer for Look magazine, through the creation of his wide-ranging movies, including the long-awaited Eyes Wide Shut. The author provides behind-the-scenes details about the writing, filming, financing, and reception of the director's entire output, paying close attention to the technical innovations and to his often contentious relationships with actors. This fascinating biography exposes the enigma that is Stanley Kubrick while placing him in the context of film history.
