Watch: Stanley Kubrick Supercut Shows His Obsession with the Color Red

Few directors’ oeuvres are as meme-able as the films of Stanley Kubrick, whose obsession with using the color red to dramatic effect is shown in this nifty supercut below (via Vimeo user Rishi Kaneria).

The wall-to-wall blood reds of “The Shining” are, of course, unforgettable, as is the foreboding set design in the wild orgy sequence of “Eyes Wide Shut.” But we also get to see how crimson colors work in “A Clockwork Orange,” “Spartacus,” “2001” and “Full Metal Jacket”: never without purpose or visual beauty.

Los Angeles moviegoers can catch “2001” on the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre later this month.
