Kubrick was born in New York City, worked in the US during the initial part of his career, eventually growing disillusioned with his American lifestyle and in 1962 moved to England where he lived until his death in 1999 at the age of 70. The portion of the book offering the critique and cinematic analysis of Kubrick's 13 major motion pictures adds interest to the biography by offering insights and commentary into the making of his compelling life's work.
