Dir. Tony Zierra. USA, 2017. 1h 34m. Starring Leon Vitali, Ryan O'Neal, Danny Lloyd, Matthew Modine, R. Lee Ermey, Stellan Skarsgård.

In the mid-1970s, Leon Vitali gave up his aspirations as an actor to serve as Stanley Kubrick’s right-hand man. This documentary reveals the extent of Vitali’s devotion to Kubrick as well as the gruelling reality of the director’s creative process.

‘It's difficult not see this film as anything other than a gripping portrait of the worst excesses of an industry that continues to support, and nurture, megalomania.’ ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times

'It's a fascinating movie, hosted largely by Vitali himself, now older, no doubt wiser, though still visibly excited and perplexed by the enigmatic genius whom he served.’ Nigel Andrews, The Financial Times
