STANLEY KUBRICK'S BOXES

"Two years after Kubrick's death, Jon Ronson was invited to the director's estate to explore the hundreds of boxes the legendary film director had collected during his decades at Childwick Manor in Hertfordshire. He's been returning ever since, and the story of Kubrick and the archive, now housed at University of the Arts London, is revealed in this fascinating documentary.

Ronson asks: is it possible to get to understand such a man – and his extraordinary working methods – by looking through the hundreds of boxes he left behind?"

Kubrick, along with a good deal of pot, got me through many days of playing hooky in high school.

Oh, and make sure the melons in the house are not diminished to less than 3. Wow.

voncheech- thanks for the supplements.

donato- with an entire pizza place at your disposal as well as a pot habit.. were you a lot heavier before I met you?

And yeah, the melons must be his secret!

bob- I had to look it up, but now I get it.

That's just it, Kirkd. I can eat myself into oblivion and nary an inch on the waistline.

I know, I know. But I eat melons…

Cheers. Wonderful special. How sad that American TV has done nothing like this.
