Stanley Kubrick's One-Point Perspective

In this compilation of famed director Stanley Kubrick's most notable films (including The Shining, Eyes Wide Shut, Full Metal Jacket, and so forth...), we see a rather interesting edit showcasing his filming technique. As one commenter suggested, the sense of symmetry creates a sense of discomfort and unease, which is arguably a Kubrick trademark. Even when nothing bad is happening, the scene creates a sense of dread in the viewer. As a film tactic, it definitely accomplishes it's psychological purpose.
