“The Kubrick Stare, sometimes referred to as the Kubrick Glare, is a common camera shot of an actor in most of Stanley Kubrick’s films. The Kubrick Glare has been called the “heavy-browed look of insanity”. It symbolizes that the character in question is either really, really pissed or really becoming deranged, and the person they’re looking at is really, really screwed. Other times—usually when combined with a smile—it means they’re feeling really, really clever. Either way, it’s really creepy and ominous.”

Stanley Kubrick’s audio cameo in Full Metal Jacket: he plays Murphy, the voice on the radio.

Source: Gerard Maguire on alt.movies.kubrick: “Murphy’s voice was recorded at Delta Sound in Shepperton by Stanley. He simply spoke into one of the walkie-talkies that he always used. It was then recorded by the simple means of placing a microphone next to the receiving walkie-talkie in another room. The whole thing start to finish took no more than a couple of takes.”
