the good thing about being sick is that i finally watch movies. this is a documentary about the shining and some of the crazy theories about the film. one guy thinks it’s kubrick’s way of telling us he worked on the staged moon landing. one guy thinks it’s all about the genocide of the american indian. another thinks it’s about the holocaust. though many of these theories are pretty crazy, it is interesting to see the film in a new way. they point out a lot of the details of the film that i had never noticed. the biggest thing that they point out is the illogical layout of the hotel, especially as the film goes on. kubrick is showing how the hotel is supernatural and his showing of this mirrors jack’s devolution. some of the details seem like just innocent mistakes, but since kubrick was so well known for his meticulous nature, it’s very possible that each of these “errors” was intentional. interesting stuff and very well put together.
