* TakeThat: Much of ''DoctorStrangelove'''s plot was inspired by Kubrick's conversations with the political scientist Thomas Schelling, whose influential book ''Arms and Influence'' took a very different perspective on nuclear weapons and the likelihood of their use by either ColdWar power.

'''Stanley Kubrick''' (July 26, 1928 March 7, 1999) was a controversial director. [[TropesAreNotBad In a good way]]. His films spanned nearly every genre he could get his hands on -- but start in the wrong place.

* ReclusiveArtist: After he went to the UK, helped by his fear of flying. It should be noted that Kubrick was only reclusive in terms of being a public figure and Hollywood celebrity. He was generally accessible to critics who wanted to interview him about his films, such as Michel Ciment of Positif, and he also maintained friendships with producers and directors and kept up to speed with new film-makers.

* AuteurLicense: Kubrick is admired by film-makers for creating a niche within Hollywood despite the fact that he wasn't prolific, rarely made films with big stars and never made purely commercial films. More importantly he held on to this license right till the end of his career, despite never making a single blockbuster film, though his movies were generally hits. None of his movies faced ExecutiveMeddling and with the chief exception of ''Spartacus'', all of them exist as Kubrick intended. Indeed, while Creator/OrsonWelles codified this idea with ''Citizen Kane'', Kubrick is seen by film-makers as a more successful example of making a ''career'' as an auteur within Hollywood, and was highly respected by the NewHollywood generation for the same reason.

* '''PrimaDonnaDirector''': TropeCodifier. After earning his AuteurLicense, every of his movies were productions which extended for years where he controlled every tiny detail and forced the actors to do over 20 takes ''at minimum''. [[TropesAreNotBad This resulted in great films]]. [[RealityEnsues It also ensured that virtually no actor worked with him twice]].
