Personal Quote:

Man isn't a noble savage, he's an ignoble savage. He is irrational, brutal, weak, silly, unable to be objective about anything where his own interests are involved- that about sums it up. I'm interested in the brutal and violent nature of man because it's a true picture of him. And any attempt to create social institutions on a false view of the nature of man is probably doomed to failure. See more »

Trivia:

Kubrick once deliberated on adapting Robert Marshall's novel All the King's Men, a dramatic account of a British intelligence service operation during World War II. See more »

Trademark:
