Hot on the heels of Taschen's Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon ($3000), The Making of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey ($1000) and The Stanley Kubrick Archives ($69.99) comes yet another magnificent Kubrick-related collectible that I won't be able to afford... Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Collection ($199.99). According to High-Def Digest:
The Masterpiece Collection features Lolita (1962), Dr. Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), The Shining (1980), Full Metal Jacket (1987) and Eyes Wide Shut (1999). "Kubrick Remembered" offers a new look into the Kubrick archives, with special appearances by the director's wife, Christiane Kubrick, as well as never-seen footage of Stanley's works, his house and his film production facilities. "Stanley Kubrick in Focus" presents such directors as Steven Spielberg, Steven Soderbergh, Oliver Stone, William Friedkin and Martin Scorsese relating how Kubrick's directorial style influenced their work.
 Ugh. I guess now I have to break down and invest in Blu-Ray(TM).
