Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg have made an incredible contribution to science fiction filmography. But who was the better director? In the eyes of Terry Gilliam, there's not even a race to be run. Not specifically on the grounds of specific technical merit, but more simply because Kubrick was willing to leave people distinctly unsettled. I often get accused of bias, and I'll admit I'm a huge fan of Kubrick's work, which has undeniably informed a lot of science fiction (and more general) film making in the past half century. So it's perhaps not shocking that I think I agree generally with Gilliam, and not just because Kubrick's willing to upset people by avoiding "happy" endings, even though that often left his films rather uncomfortable to watch.
