Cool Video Essay: Stanley Kubrick | The Economy of Statement

An excellent video essay by Must See Films.

Stanley Kubrick | The Economy of Statement: This video explores an idea that I heard Kubrick discuss in an interview which I was fascinated by. I thought about it lots and wondered what he was really talking about. Then I found some other interview materials that talked about this idea of visual poetry, economy of statement, pure cinema and it helped expand my understanding. I tried to share some film examples at the end which I think have moments of ‘pure cinema’ but I’d be curious to hear your examples. I’ll be in the comments if you’d like to share.
