A list of Stanley Kubrick's favorite films, from the article "Stanley Kubrick, cinephile" written by Nick Wrigley and published on the website of the British Film Institute.
In order to create the most complete and definitive list possible, Wrigley compiled all known statements and lists made by the director himself. He then interviewed Kubrick's long-time assistant and producer, Jan Harlan.
It should be noted that this is an ongoing effort - if additional reliable sources identifying specific films (rather than just filmmakers) are found, they'll be added to the master list on the BFI site.
