Are there any other Kubrickian films out there?

Kubrick, of course, is a director unto himself. However, there are many 
other films which have that Kubrickian blend of intellect, humanity, 
depth, philosophical perspective, and (sometimes suppressed) emotion, 
as well other films which have that "on the edge" or "over the top" 
Kubrickian quality. Perhaps the most prominent feature of Kubrick's 
films, internal congruence, is also present in these films.

Here is a short, incomplete, and very eclectic list of other excellent 
more or less Kubrick-like films. Many of these films belong in more than 
one category, so use these categories just as a temporary reference 
point:
