Quite literally Few Understand

For this video’s [ Ice Spice & Nicki Minaj - Princess Diana ] +53,000 comments and 15 million views, none among the top 3,000 make any remark about the eerily similar aesthetic to Kubrick’s 2001 Space Odessey

There’s so much Kubrick in everything that came after him. His work is so ubiquitous that the first time I watched most of his films I found them boring AF. If I wasn’t a student of film and media I wouldn’t have given many of them a second viewing. The Shining is a prime example. Nearly every shot has been the inspiration for countless directors of horror films especially. So much so that The Shining is not even scary anymore but rather just a series of what become tropes after generations of an entire genre borrowing from it. Everything is a remix.
