Review quote

"'They say [Kubrick] had no personal life, but that's ridiculous. It would be more correct to say that he had no professional life, since everything he did was personally done' Michael Herr; 'Kubrick is a captivating little book rather like an Arthur Miller play: it plays out on a small scale but invokes the epic themes of friendship, art, sex and war it is intimate, honest and affectionate' Guardian"
