There have been many tributes paid to the director and visionary Stanley Kubrick over the years. In this beautifully edited seven-minute video, one fan pays homage to one of the great minds in cinema history and expert of the color red, by foregrounding the director’s own words:
““A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.””
The compilation of images and dialogue from some of Kubrick’s much-loved cinematic works include 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Barry Lyndon, Full Metal Jacket, A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Paths of Glory, The Killing, Eyes Wide Shut, Spartacus, Killer’s Kiss and Lolita. Perhaps channeling Alex DeLarge’s love for Beethoven’s ninth symphony, the entire medley is soundtracked by Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.
