Classic Films Represented in Only 9 Frames

The Shining

9 Film Frames is a single topic blog on Tumblr that presents the entirety of a movie in nine panels. The frames include anything from key plot points to popular scenes that have gone on to leave their mark in film history. The blog is an ongoing project that includes a wide variety of films from Orson Welles' classic Citizen Kane and blockbusters like The Dark Knight and Inception to the more obscure and indie films like Melancholia and Memento, as well as David Lynch's cult classic Mulholland Drive.

The blog, which only began in March, has archived almost 40 films thus far and continues to expand its library of 9-frame creations. For movie lovers, it really has the ability to provide an endless source of entertainment through nostalgia. Cinephiles have the opportunity to sift through the 9-frame visual summaries and reminisce on the great films throughout history while creating a sort of game out of it. Can you guess the film just by looking at 9 frames? Or, if you haven't seen the movie, can you figure out the plot?
