This continuing series will showcase the cinema masterworks of some of the most thoughtful and influential directors in recent decades.

Kubrick's work ranges from early masterpieces like Spartacus to rarely seen iconic titles like A Clockwork Orange and the classic war film Paths of Glory. Malick's recent blockbuster The Tree of Life has piqued interest in his earlier visionary works.

This is the first in a continuing series of sustained explorations of the masterworks of modern cinema.
