Specials

The two-and-a-half-hour documentary Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures (7:30 p.m., Cinemax) surveys the director's modest but legendary output, and features interviews with friends and admirers, as well as rare footage of Kubrick at work. Tom Cruise narrates. Immediately followed by airings of "Eyes Wide Shut" and "A Clockwork Orange." Harrison Ford hosts AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Thrills (8 p.m., CBS), a three-hour countdown of the most thrilling movies of all time, as chosen by an American Film Institute-commissioned panel. No matter how this thing shapes up, somebody's going to disagree.
