"Cinemagraphs", hipstermitter?

Calling them "Animated GIFs" too pedestrian and mainstream for you?

basemetal, that's an animated slideshow more than anything.

Cinemagraphs are when only part of the frame is animated and the rest is a still, which is what these are.

How many of them are people sitting still, and then blinking?

phrenicmonkey: Malcolm McDowell just breathing has an aura of menace. Best one, in my books.


I can't figure out if McDowell just perfectly executed that role, or if he was just perfectly cast... maybe both? It has to be right up there with the greatest screen "villain" performances.

Both. He was a natural when Kubrick cast him. It's WHY he cast him.

Here's more from the website mentioned in TFA. (I think it was on Fark a while back.)

From the link: There is a cold pedantry to his work, an unfeeling, ivory-tower vantage that, when married to the analytical care he took with his craft, can leave you feeling a little cold towards his films.

My paternal grandfather was a "Doctor to the stars" in Hollywood during the 30's - 70's. My Dad was around movie stars and movie sets his whole life, he took me along to a few shoots when I was young. I live across the street from a very popular filming site here in Los Angeles (the Park Plaza Hotel by MacArthur Park), the place is always crawling with trucks and cameras and lighting etc.

Point being: I have never had that "Wow! The mystery and magic and surprise of movies! Golly!" attitude, I ALWAYS, for every second I watch a movie or TV show am aware that just off the frame, 20 people are standing around and that it's all fake.

That's why I *love* Kubrick's movies so damn much, exactly for the reasons the article mentions. I love watching Danny in The Shining zip around the hotel in his plastic tricycle because the camera work is so smooth and flowing (using Steadicam); I love how there's almost no sound in 2001, except for the use of music and ambient sounds like Dave breathing etc. etc. Kubrick doesn't pretend that he ISN'T in control of everything, including manipulating the viewer's emotions.

Mileage varies widely, obviously.

Love the one of HAL, a full-screen version of that would be an awesome desktop background.

That'd be awesome even if it was just the movie quotes with stills.

I'll take the one of him blinking thoughtfully then breaking into a cackle.

It screams FARK.

AI was an awesome movie. Like most Kubrick films it was unappreciated in its day, but in time people will come to appreciate its brilliance.

I think the main problem is people don't realize the "aliens" at the end are actually robots that have replaced humanity.

I say again...it's a hard story to tell. But I think properly it should be called a Spielberg film since he....I don't know....directed it. My understanding is Kubrick gave up on it and turned it over to Spielberg to try.

Which is probably why they think the movie should have ended with him trapped under the ferris wheel. That's stupid. It leaves the movie without a 3rd act. It's supoposed to be about artificially intelligent mechas trying to understand humanity, not finding the blue fairy. The blue fairy subplot was only introduced fifteen minutes ealier. But some people like bleak endings for the sake of it, even if it doesn't fit with the overall narrative.

/shortly before his death, legendary director Billy Wilder called his one of his favorite movies of recent years
//Roger Ebert revisited it and went from his initial lukewarm review to adding it to his Great Movie column
///it doesn't help that Armond White considers it one of the greatet movies ever made

these are absurd and surreal. I like it.

So, its an efficient gif.

As long as I can remember, I always knew movies weren't real, and simply appreciated them for the story. The first time I found myself in the middle of a movie, having forgotten it WAS a movie was while watching the Prestige.

I'm huge Kubrick fan, and I love the precision, the intricate preciseness of his films. They're like watching a beautifully-constructed clock or autonomic run through its paces. The actors are simply a gear in a train, no more or less imporant than the camera or the set decor or the music.

/still think Ryan O'Neal was atrocious in Barry Lyndon
//but wonder if maybe, he was supposed to be atrocious.

That was a fun ride. Evidently "Holy Mountain", which I've never heard of, is a tripping balls kinda movie.

I started watching Clockwork Orange for the first time last. Holy sh*t. Pure madness from the start. At least on my tv the background noises are too loud compared to the dialogue so I don't know if I will finish it.

Got to the part of them driving in the car through the woods.
