The Shining Jack Nicholson

There are many reasons why Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" is a masterpiece of modern horror, from Jack Nicholson's performance as Jack Torrance, the writer whose mind is slowly unraveling into madness, to the carefully established tone of slow dread. But as usual, Kubrick's unwavering eye behind the camera plays a big part in the mood and feel of the film.

Over on Vimeo, Ian Kammer has put together a nice little collage of every (usually slow) zoom shoot in the film, a good reminder of how, with a simple camera movement, Kubrick establishes an unbelievable feeling of claustrophobia and fear. Nicely done. Watch below. [via Reddit]

    I am intrigued. Very great post, Kevin. The video is quite compelling, I am a fan of Mr. Kuberick and it's interesting to see today's film-makers pay attention to what Mr. Kubrick did with his style. Very good video. Loved it!!

    This is pointless and useless. There's nothing interesting about the collage, and it's not a good way to appreciate how with a simple camera movement, Kubrick establishes an unbelievable feeling of claustrophobia and fear.

    I think regurgitating opinions are pointless but here you are giving them. If you don't appreciate a video then say that but don't talk down about someone's work like that.

    I just love when somebody of the staff gets angry at the comments section.

    But I do think this is not worth a whole news post.

    I wouldn't go THAT far, but I wish it was arranged better - less images on the screen so I can appreciate what is happening in each frame. But "pointless"? Someone seems a little bitter to me
