It’s always tempting to look back at the tastes of the masters, to see which art inspired the art that now inspires us. If we’re talking about movies, that often means Stanley Kubrick, who not only devoted his life to making movies, but to watching them as well. There are a couple of different lists of Kubrick’s favorite films floating around online—this one, put together by the British Film Institute and featuring input from Kubrick’s frequent collaborator and friend, Jan Harlan, is a pretty good start—but we’ll admit that just reading lists of movies can get a little dry. When we’re discussing one of the great visual stylists of modern film, is it so much to ask for a little candy for the eyes?


Stanley Kubrick's favorite films / Candice Drouet from Really Dim on Vimeo.

Luckily, we’ve got a new video from editing pro Candice Drouet—who previously showed off her Kubrickian expertise with a supercut of most of the Clockwork Orange and The Shining references hidden all over The Simpsons—to do just that. Drouet doesn’t just show Kubrick’s favorite films, but also the posters they used to lure viewers in, pairing each broadsheet with the scene from the film it drew its images from. Part of her longer “My Life In 1.000.000 Frames” project, it’s a fascinating look at movies you might not have seen, but whose impact helped define the vocabulary of 20th century art.
