Living Stills

“I would like all at once: to be your wife.” 
La dolce vita (1960)

I'm very taken with these animated GIFS or cinemagraphs by Gustaf Mantel. They have a way of distilling the entire film into a single moment and creating a living movie still. His tumblr is filled with them - definitely worth some exploring 

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) 

“Well, I don’t think it’s very intelligent to keep an electrical gadget on the edge of the tub. … I tie it to the radiator.”
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)

“A boy’s best friend is his mother.”
Psycho (1960)


“In the industry, we call them cigarette burns.” 
Fight Club (1999)
