Kubrick vs Scorsese

I found this around the internet the other day and really wanna to share it with you guys. This guy over at Vimeo, Leandro Copperfield, dissected the works of Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese and worked up a kickass video. Even if you're not a follower of either director, if you're just a fan of good films, its worth a look:

Its clever how everything plays out almost like a dance. Symmetry, balance, movement and gravitas all flow together in a beautiful blend of style and substance. These guys influence the last 40 years of movies, folks like Tarantino, Woo, the Wachowskis, Zack Snyder and others would be no where without these original movie badasses. Now I'm totally gonna have to crack open every Kubrick and Scorsese DVD in my library and bask in the glory that are these classics of American Cinema.
