Stanley Kubrick's Boxes

Two years after Stanley Kubrick's death, Jon Ronson was invited to the director's estate to explore the hundreds of boxes the legendary film director had collected during his decades at Childwick Manor in Hertfordshire.

He's been returning ever since, and the story of Kubrick and the archive, now housed at University of the Arts London, is revealed in this fascinating documentary.

Ronson asks: is it possible to get to understand such a man – and his extraordinary working methods – by looking through the hundreds of boxes he left behind?

Jon Ronson is a top man.

Many years ago when Radovan Karadzic was at the height of his 'power', Jon Ronson made a documentary about him - continually doorstepping him trying to get an interview.

It was hilarious seeing this little skinny guy constantly provoking a dangerous warmonger and his huge (heavily armed) henchmen.
