I'm sure it was Stanley Kubrick that was afraid of flying which is why "Full Metal Jacket" was filmed partly in London's docklands as
opposed to overseas.Also he received death threats over" A Clockwork Orange " which was why it was withdrawn for many years.I really liked his films
and agree "2001" was his finest hour.
One of his greatest creative talents was the idea of using visuals to define characters and plots instead of the script itself. He picked his projects
in that regard...and I can't really think of anyone else who has done such a thing.
Believe it or not....my fav. is Eyes Wide Shut.
