Inspired by the Rishi Kaneria supercut of Stanley Kubrick’s use of red in films, the Marc Anthony Figueras sequel examines his use of the whole color spectrum. The clips, pulled from 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut, are sequenced by color from red and blue all the way to black and white.

The result is a captivating tribute to the legendary director’s powerful use of color to visually manipulate our interpretation of his films. Colors have an effect and Kubrick was the master of attaching emotion to colors that visually evoked a certain atmosphere which transcended beyond the screen into our own psychology. Each Kubrick film used color slightly differently. The Shining‘s use of red was indicative of violence, danger and blood lust — different than its representation of love and desire in Eyes Wide Shut. Check out Kubrick In Color and immerse yourself in the visual palette of the iconic cinematographer.
