Me too. I've seen all of his movies from the killing onward, although I've not seen his first couple. I would say he's one of only two directors that I know really well who basically only make works of art, the other being Kurosawa.

Also, I'm a huge fan of brain pickings. If you don't read it regularly, I would suggest mixing into your rotation. It's my favorite culture website.

Blue, White and Red are all wonderful films. I second your recommendation.

Agreed. There aren't many directors who can use silence and extended pauses between lines of dialogue in the manner that he does, where it adds to the atmosphere of the scene and the movie as a whole. You can pick any frame out of nearly every scene and it could hold its own as a photograph. Truly one of the best.

For me, Kubrick is forever associated with Stephen King just because I was introduced to both through The Shining. Apparently King wasn't a fan of the film. -I think he's crazy, but it's his creation and he has every right to bring judgment. A while back alpha0 posted sk on sk. -good interview.
