Stanley Kubrick was an American film director and largely considered one of the most innovative and artistic craftsman of his generation. Many of Kubrick's films centered upon similar themes, often dealing with the human condition and the dehumanization of the mind. This was illustrated in his 1980 film The Shining, which was loosely based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King. Kubrick was known for being very acerbic, often abusive, to his production crew. On the set of The Shining, it was rumored that he had screamed and shouted and actress Shelley Duvall so often that he brought her to tears on more than one occasion. Leading actor Jack Nicholson was forced to intervene on Duvall's behalf, asking Kubrick to ease up on her.

King disliked Kubrick's interpretation of his book and eventually reproduced The Shining as a television mini-series in 1997.

Kubrick passed away in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, England on March 7th, 1999. He was early in the production stages of a longtime project called A.I.: Artificial Intelligence. The film would eventually be completed by collaborator Steven Spielberg.
