Yes, I was terribly upset to hear of his death. By coincidence I was simultaneously reading two biographies of him when I heard.

He is absolutely my favourite film director on the basis of just two movies. I didn't care for The Shining, thought Barry Lyndon was empty, couldn't handle Clockwork Orange and didn't think Full Metal Jacket amounted to very much. But 2001 and Dr Strangelove alone are enough to make him, in my estimation, the greatest director.
