There's a reason why we study so much of the oeuvre of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, and it's not because of the hype. He is a true genius that deserves the attention.
Kubrick left something extremely important to cinema -- his imprint. Each of his films have that unique Kubrick-esque quality that cannot be matched. It's Kubrick's obsessive-compulsive approach that makes everything "him". From casting, sets, props and costumes, special effects, cinematography, lighting, opticals, miniatures, sound editing -- everything has been carefully adjusted by the man himself.
And nothing more than his film "2001: A Space Odyssey" to represent his artistic signature.
