Stanley Kubrick not only made films of majesty and unsettling mystery, he also kept meticulous records of the odysseys behind them. Next summer, that collection will find a new home at the University of the Arts London. The archives of the director of such landmark films as "Dr. Strangelove," "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Lolita" include not only scripts and research documents from his productions but also correspondence, costumes, props, models, photographs and film equipment.

Having successfully brought Abraham Lincoln to the screen, Steven Spielberg has already set his sights on another titan of history: Napoleon. In an interview with Canal + Television in France, Spielberg, who was recently named jury head at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival , revealed that he's planning to turn a decades-old screenplay about the French leader written by the late great Stanley Kubrick into a miniseries. “I've been developing Stanley Kubrick's screenplay - for a miniseries not for a motion picture - about the life of Napoleon,” Spielberg said.

The sleek logo for LACMA's “art+film” gala does a beautiful job of balancing “art” and “film,” giving each word equal space around the plus sign. The museum gala that took place Saturday night under that rubric was another story: The entertainment world easily outshone the art world, and the evening designed to celebrate artist Ed Ruscha alongside filmmaker Stanley Kubrick became mainly a Kubrick odyssey, to borrow the title of the screening series that accompanies LACMA's new Kubrick exhibition.

Last Chance Movies "Grand Master: The Films of Stanley Kubrick"--The American Cinematheque's retrospective ends Saturday with the documentary "Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures" and the director's last film, "Eyes Wide Shut." The latter, completed just before his death and starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman as a married couple who stumble onto the edge of a terrible moral abyss, is a strange, somber and troubling meditation on jealousy, obsession and (yes) sex and death.

Warner Bros. does pretty well in the picture business--and now finds itself also selling armaments. That is, the London office is selling 60 M-16 guns, 50 M-14 guns, two M-60 machine guns; 40 AK-47s and "a lot of extraneous war supplies" (like flak jackets and hand grenades). It's all leftover from Stanley Kubrick's Vietnam War production of "Full Metal Jacket," due this summer.
