27 Visually Stunning Stanley Kubrick Cinemagraphs

A common theme runs throughout all of director Stanley Kubrick's masterful films - his total devotion to creating iconic imagery & scenes. Dublin-based film critic Paul Lynch may have summed it up best speaking on A Clockwork Orange:

Those widescreen shots seem to push the natural boundaries of the screen, to absorb every photon of light. Kubrick wanted to do to his audiences what he did to Alex in A Clockwork Orange: to peel back our eyelids until we are forced to see every beam from the projector. He did not want us to blink.

There is a cold pedantry to his work, an unfeeling, ivory-tower vantage that, when married to the analytical care he took with his craft, can leave you feeling a little cold towards his films.

To celebrate the visually arresting power of his work, here's a collection of Cinemagraphs - from some of the most iconic scenes from his movies, enjoy!
