Featured Video: Tribute to Kubrick, and more

barringer82 over on YouTube has a bunch of compilation videos of different directors and time periods. This one is to Stanley Kubrick, of 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Paths of Glory, Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, and many, many other which feature in this video. Plus, it’s really well put together; someday when I get good video editing software, this is the sort of thing I’d love to do in my spare time, though I doubt I have the patience to do it this well. I also recommend the ones for David Lynch, Wes Anderson, and The Coen Brothers, and I’m sure all the rest are good, too, but I haven’t had time to watch them all. via kottke.
