Althouse admits that she has not seen all of Stanley Kubrick's films.

Neither have I. 

It's nice to learn that I am not the only person who has never watched "Spartacus." 

A great film-maker, of course, but how many of his films would you want to watch more than once? Do I really want to see "Clockwork Orange" or "The Shining" or "Barry Lyndon" again?

On the other hand, "Dr. Strangelove" is a multi-view movie.

I'm a big fan of Kubrick's work. Full Metal Jacket is my favourite. Like you there are a few that I'd rather not watch again but Spartacus, well, I didn't know there was anyone who hadn't watched it. Take care, Julian

You've put both Spartacus and Full Metal Jacket on my watch list.
