Red, Red Rum: Watch a Supercut of Kubrick's Use of Red

November 21, 2014


As has been stated and restated in so many a last-minute film studies paper, Stanley Kubrick's deliberate, powerful use of red is worth exploring as a visual motif extending throughout the director's oeuvre. Thankfully, Rishi Kaneria is not asking us to read ten pages on that. As they did with their similarly-themed Pixar ROYGBIV supercut, the editor instead presents Kubrick's many scarlet hues as simple, to-the-point montage that lets the director's brilliant images speak for themselves. A great visual treat for cinephiles; a horrible prank for daltonists. Have a look below.
