Candid, often funny and sometimes shocking, this utterly fascinating documentary gives unique insight into the creative genius of one of cinema’s greatest directors—and the man who helped him fulfill his vision. It’s a rare person who would give up fame and fortune to toil in obscurity for someone else’s creative vision. Yet that’s exactly what Leon Vitali did after his acclaimed performance as Lord Bullingdon in Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. The young actor surrendered his thriving career to become Kubrick’s loyal right-hand man and jack of all trades. For more than two decades, Leon played a crucial role behind-the-scenes helping the notoriously meticulous Kubrick make and maintain his legendary body of work. The complex, interdependent relationship between Leon and Stanley was founded on devotion, sacrifice and the grueling, joyful reality of the creative process. Leon’s loyal service did not end with Kubrick’s death in 1999; it is thanks to his fanatical dedication that Kubrick’s oeuvre is preserved in the quality that the master would have demanded. With Ryan O'Neal, Matthew Modine, R. Lee Ermey, Stellan Skarsgård, Daniel Lloyd, Marie Richardson, Pernilla August and others.
