It seems that now, 15 years after his death, Stanley Kubrick‘s genius is an undisputed fact. Even if you are one of those people who doesn’t like Kubrick’s movies (AKA people with bad taste in movies), I think we can all agree that Kubrick knew his way around a camera, creating some of the most epic and gorgeous shots in cinema history. The beauty of Stanley Kubrick’s directing and cinematography is the subject of this amazing tribute video created by Vimeo user Marc Müller. The video is called Stanley Kubrick’s Poetry and if you aren’t already a Stanley Kubrick super-fan, I’m certain this video will convert you into one.
