These arresting photographs by the young Stanley Kubrick show why he became a great director

I agree with Sérgio that the photo-as-rough draft for film comparison is highly problematic. Kubrick didn’t even storyboard his films. Yes, he knows how to frame a shot, but his films are dynamic and exploit the unique qualities of the moving image. Pawel Pawlikowski’s film Ada is a good example of what you’re saying because photographs storyboard each shot and in all but two shots the camera was static almost as if the film were a photo album. Brian De Palma, on the other hand, did obsessive stroyboarding but the shots are all about movement.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
