Watch This Stunning Compilation of Stanley Kubrick’s Usage of Different Colors

Kubrick In Color from Marc Anthony Figueras on Vimeo.

Stanley Kubrick’s work in film has been a beautiful source of debate and dissection for decades. Hell, there’s an entire documentary called Room 237 dedicated to analyzing his adaptation of The Shining alone. And while his movies snagged our brains and splattered their insides, their visuals captured our attention, reveling in an emotional construct by way of—whether you realized it or not—color (red especially).

In fact, it was the heavy and dramatic use of red in Kubrick’s work, specifically The Shining and 2001: A Space Odyssey that inspired Rishi Kaneria to create his notable supercut about red as a theme of the director. The short more recently inspired a broader offering of Kubrick’s reliance on color as somewhat of a main character weaving through his filmography. Marc Anthony Figueras put together “Kubrick in Color,” which showcases the filmmaker’s use of many colors—red, blue, yellow, purple, pink, orange, green, and black/white.
