You have an intricate knowledge of Kubrick and I really enjoy reading what you post about him, P.

Usually when I find texts on Kubrick they're either somewhat condescending to Kubrick or they announce that they know who he was and what he was doing without a shadow of a doubt, which as you've illustrated, undermines many avenues of his films.  I'm a big Kubrick fan, but nowhere near the biggest.  I'm really engaged into how you're able to formulate all of this.
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye
