Stanley Kubrick Stalks Jimmy Stewart in This Brilliant Short Film

In Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Jimmy Stewart follows Kim Novak on a circuitous, increasingly paranoid sojourn through San Francisco, trying to figure out what, exactly, she’s doing, a question whose answer he unfortunately finds out. The paranoia of Hitchcock’s films is surpassed only by the paranoia of Stanley Kubrick’s films, which are rife with delusion and deceit. Well, some brilliant video editor has finally conflated the two mad geniuses of cinema. In a new short film called “The Red Drum Getaway,” the characters of Kubrick’s films stalk Jimmy Stewart, looking like ghosts from a haunted past while Bernard Herrmann’s classic score percolates. You can watch the short video below.
