LONDON (AP) -- Stanley Kubrick, director of ``2001: A Space Odyssey''
and ``Full Metal Jacket,'' died Sunday at his home, his family said.
He was 70.

Officers were summoned to Kubrick's rural home north of London on
Sunday afternoon, said police in Hertfordshire, where he was
certified dead. ``There are no suspicious circumstances,'' police
Kubrick's family announced his death, and said there would be no
further comment.
Kubrick's films included ``Spartacus'' in 1960, ``Lolita'' in 1962,
``Dr. Strangelove'' in 1964, ``2001'' in 1968 an ``A Clockwork
Orange'' in 1971.
He also made ``Barry Lyndon,'' released in 1975, ``The Shining'' in
1978 and ``Full Metal Jacket'' in 1987.
His latest film, ``Eyes Wide Shut,'' was slated for release in July.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman starred in the story of jealousy and
obsession which Kubrick made in great secrecy.
