Speaking of Kubrik... I never really saw the appeal in his films. 2001, for example. It's bloated. It could be cut down to half an hour without losing anything (well, except for the overlong shots).
Perhaps you expect the film to be about the plot. It's not. It's an entirely visual exercise, and, as I believe Kubrick said, "Nothing important [in it] is conveyed in dialogue."
That's why it is such a bad film.
