Calling all film and design buffs! The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is currently showing the first U.S. retrospective of master director Stanley Kubrick's prolific 45-year life and career in film. We suggest visiting the exhibition for yourself, up close and personal, but if you're somehow unable to make the trip before June 3, 2013, click on through for our tour.
