Kubrick Glare

The legendary film-maker Stanley Kubrick was a pioneer of a very unique style of cinema. He had a few trademarks that not only made his movies visually stunning but are today known under his name too. One such Kubrick trademark was the Kubrick Glare. It’s a simple camera shot, wherein the close-up is on the character, while the character slightly tilt’s down his or her head and looks up from beneath the lowered eyebrows. And the intensity of the emotions is so easily depicted. The character in such situation is often menacing and more or less insane. Here are a few of my favourite Kubrick Glares.
