    Gentlemen...the search engine has most definitely defeated me. About a year and 1/2 ago there was a post referencing a website which was selling the great Stanley Kubrick documentary separately from the box set. I cant find it and was wondering if anyone still has that site listing and whether it is still available...

    I, too, would like to know this, since I already have 2001 and Dr. Strangelove, and I don't want Barry Lyndon.

    Ray.. I appreciated the effort it must have took to find that antiquated post, but as you were advising, it does appear the site has been buried. Has anyone else seen if for sale individually? I would say money is no object but I'm afraid someone would point me to EBAY.

    You may want to check this thread out.

    I am very interested in purchasing the documentary as well. I refuse to spend money on The Shining and Full Metal Jacket, so I also hope to get it individually.

    It's a shame that nobody asked about the possibility of a separate release in the recent Warner Bros. chat.

    Good news, folks. The Stanley Kubrick documentary is available as a separate disc from Amazon France. It is absolutely English-friendly, with only the case notes in French. Otherwise, it's exactly the same edition as the one in the box-set. The bad news for you is that the disc is R2 encoded and you may find it a bit pricey depending on your exchange rate into Euros.
    I didn't look at the links on this thread so this may be repeat information, but there were rumours of the doc being released separately with some extra features. I wouldn't count on this anytime soon, but who knows ?

    I didn't necessarily want to own this disc, but I really wanted to see the documentary, which I heard was excellent. (I have all the discs except Lolita and Lyndon, and didn't want to purchase the others again).. I eventually gave up the search (none of the video stores in my area had it, even those with all the other discs in the SK collection series)

    Luckily, I discovered the DVD was available for rent at my local university library, so I finally saw it this week.

    I don't understand why this wasn't made a stand-alone title (like the others). Oh wait, yeah I do. To make everyone buy/double-dip on the box set..

    Good luck everyone...

    Well, it is a great documentary. I caught it when it first premiered in Cinemax and I must've seen it over six times already.

    Reportedly Jan Harlan said at a recent Q&A session, new material had been uncovered at the Kubrick Estate, and that they were going to reissue a new, longer version. Might be worth keeping this in mind.
