LoBrutto's biography of the distinguished film director contains interviews with those who knew him during his formative years, as well as accounts by his cinema colleagues. Despite worldwide controversy and acclaim, the public knows little about the reclusive and intensely private director of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, LOLITA and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.

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 reasonably 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.Review:
"Meticulously researched....[A] brave foray into the world and mind of an intensely complex subject". -- Minneapolis Star Tribune
