    IMO each of his films was a masterpiece of film making. I only like some not as much as others. But not one of those films I don't like would I call a dud.

    Maybe there exist duds in his early work. I have not seen his films before Paths of Glory (1957). But then these are the films of his beginning. I think even a great director is allowed some duds in his early phase.

    A Clockwork Orange used to be my favorite movie. I don't like it anymore. And the second half of Full Metal Jacket is awful (you can tell the setting is a small section of Britain, not Viet Nam) and cliched. And Eyes Wide Shut ... ugh
