20 stunning cinemagraphs from classic movies

We all have standout scenes from our favourite movies. A series of frames that may have shocked, scared, impressed, amused, amazed or moved us. These are moments that extend beyond the film, and can often take on a life of their own (Jack Torrance axeing his way through a door, anyone?).

And whatever your favourite movie moments may be, you can now enjoy them on repeat courtesy of a cinemagraph. Unlike animated gifs, which capture a whole section of repeated video, cinemagraphs only represent a small fraction of a scene, and repeat only that movement, whilst the rest of the frame remains frozen.
