"...un coffret sublime. C'est monumental pour les passionnés. C'est somptueux!"— Ali Baddou in Le Grand Journal Canal Plus, Paris, France
"El Waterloo de Kubrick. El libro cuesta 500 euros, ocupa 2.874 páginas y se extiende en 11 volúmenes. Son las dimensiones del tesoro que la editorial TASCHEN publica en tres lenguas para reconstruir la película imposible de Stanley Kubrick."— El Mundo, Madrid, Spain
"Le Waterloo de Kubrick. Le cinéaste génial de "Barry Lyndon" et "Full Metal Jacket" a toujours voulu tourner un film sur la vie de Napoléon. Un magnifique livre-objet raconte l'histoire de ce projet fou qui tourna à la Berezina. Didier Jacob a enquêté."— Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, France
"Now for the first time ever Kubrick's immense research material behind the project has been opened exclusively to art book publisher TASCHEN for a book they're dubbing The Greatest Movie Never Made."— Filmmaker Magazine, New York, United States
"Napoleon should have been Stanley Kubrick's unstoppable cinematic force following 2001: A Space Odyssey-but the film was never made. TASCHEN unravels this mystery with its new hardcover volume, The Greatest Movie Never Made."— Malibu Magazine, Los Angeles, United States
"Luckily for film buffs, however, TASCHEN publications has just released a book about Kubrick's Napoleon. The sumptuous and hefty volume includes everything Kubrick compiled while planning "Napoleon" including costume studies, script drafts, photos, sketches and Kubrick's letters to friends and advisors regarding the project...we have to think this is probably the best ever book we'll never read about a film we'll never see."— Asylum.com, New York, United States
"He bought Childwickbury Manor as a leaky pile in 1978, its restoration a labour of love. An outbuilding is now an Aladdin's cave of boxes and flight cases, housing material from all his films. And there, tantalisingly, sit those boxes marked 'Napoleon'. Some of their contents finally see the light of day this month, with the publication of a set of books entitled Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon: The Greatest Film Never Made, from TASCHEN. The boxed set of volumes featuring Kubrick's 28,000 word 'treatment', transcripts of conversations with academics, the annotated screenplay, even pictures of finished prototype costumes, as well as sundry materials, is a collation culled from 88 boxes - no mean feat, judging by the thousands of documents I saw exploding from one trunk alone."— Sunday Times Culture, London, United Kingdom
"Oh TASCHEN why do you like to empty my pockets?...As amazing as (Napoloen) is, and I'm sure any and all Kubrick heads would love to put this up on their bookshelves and/or coffee tables, it's limited to 1,000 numbered copies and is going for a hefty $700.00. Not that this isn't worth every penny but designers especially, gotta eat."— Waxinandmilkin.com, Los Angeles, United States
"Tucked inside this elegant carved-out book/archaeological specimen is an exhaustive collection of location-scouting photos, costume details, and letters-plus the last draft of the screenplay Kubrick had hoped to film following 2001."— Men.style.com, New York, United States
“Four months from now another book we can look forward to is a big Stanley Kubrick coffee-table book called Stanley Kubrick: The Napoleon Film, which will be published by TASCHEN, running 1900 pages and costing I don’t know what….just under $300 quid? Written by Allison Castle and edited by Christiane Kubrick (i.e. Kubrick’s widow), it will focus entirely on the famous Napoleon biopic that Kubrick began working on in 68’ and bailed on four or five years later – i.e. “the greatest film that Kubrick never made.”— Hollywood-elsewhere.com, Los Angeles, United States
