Stanley Kubrick on the set of Spartacus.

"One of the things I tried to avoid in filming Spartacus was the usual thinking that goes into directing epics. We tried to do Spartacus as if we were filming a Marty.”

"The lasting and ultimately most important reputation of a film is not based on reviews, but on what, if anything, people say about it over the years, and on how much affection for it they have."

Stanley Kubrick (July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999)
