In the nine years following Stanley Kubrick's death on March 7, 1999, several of his collaborators have written and spoken about their experiences working with this notoriously reclusive filmmaker. Their reminiscences shed light on aspects of Kubrick’s family life, private thoughts and work habits, and make for fascinating reading and viewing. Those who've shared their reflections include Michael Herr
(co-screenwriter, "Full Metal Jacket"); Leon Vitali
(actor, "Barry Lyndon" and Kubrick's personal assistant for nearly 25 years);
(credited with the "screen story" for "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence"); and
(who helped to develop the story for "A.I."). Peter Bogdanovich gathered together the impressions of others who worked with Kubrick on various projects
over the legendary director's career.

(co-screenwriter, "Eyes Wide Shut"); Nicole Kidman
, Tom Cruise
and Alan Cumming
(actors, "Eyes Wide Shut"); as well as Steven Spielberg
(director and screenwriter, "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence").
