Must Watch Video Awesomely Breaks Down The Camera Work in Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING and Why it's So Creepy
If you're a fan of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, you have to this fantastic video created by the team at Wisecrack. It takes us through the film and breaks down the intriguing cinematography of the film and explains what it is that makes it so damn creepy and unsettling.
The way the camera is used in the film creates so much uneasiness with the way the shots are framed and a few other intriguing tricks are used to get the maddening effect that Kubrick was going for. It always has us guessing about what in the hell is really going on!
One thing that I really enjoyed about this video essay was how it was shown. As you'll see the narrator of the video is superimposed over the actual film footage and it actually looks really good. It definitely adds a fun visual flare to it. This is probably the best film video essay that I've seen and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
