Watch this supercut showing Quentin Tarantino’s stylish use of sound

Quentin Tarantino is well known for making visual homages to the film styles he loves the most, particularly spaghetti westerns, martial arts epics, and ’70s blaxploitation films. Part of that process means paying particular attention to sound design, capturing every swoosh and clang in just the right way. By now, Tarantino’s made an art of using sound and visual flourishes to accentuate his scenes. So, in “Hearing Tarantino“, Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney decided to create a supercut of some of the director’s most interesting use of sound in his films.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice it’s not just sound that’s important here. When the action is high, close-ups, zooms, and pans are the scenes that get the really gripping sound…

A supercut of stares in Darren Aronofsky movies

Darren Aronofsky can be a grandiose director. Think of his big set pieces: Black Swan‘s ballet or The Wrestler‘s final match. But, as with other directors, the tiny moments add up.

It’s a silly request for a 90-minute movie to stop while its hero waits for an elevator, but it’s not the worst request. We may not fight evil empires, but we eat three meals a day and, you know, evacuate those meals with some regularity. The rituals of everyday life, like buying coffee and taking off shoes, are familiar and they help to humanize characters.

Something can be boring, but cool at the same time

Watch a supercut of Stanley Kubrick’s obsession with the color red

From the budding supercut master who brought you ROYGBIV: A Pixar Supercut comes this short (and wildly re-watchable) exploration of Stanley Kubrick’s use of the color red. Aptly set to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, the smartly-edited video clocks in at just over one minute. Though the cuts are quick, be warned that they obviously give some details away about Kubrick’s biggest films — which, if you haven’t seen, for shame — and in certain offices this could be considered NSFW because, you know… blood.
