Apparently it's Stanley Kubrick's birthday today...came across this picture.

Is this a kind of diopter ? Seems like it would catch lots of reflections without a matte box, suppose you could use a french flag etc.

That's a split diopter! They are usually much smaller and come in 4.5" round and 138mm round sizes to fit in a matte box bellows. This one looks like it is made for the diopter to be slid into and out of the shot, much like the one Gordon Willis commissioned for 'All the President's Men.'
