About the Movie
After the box office failure of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick decided to embark on a project that might have more commercial appeal. The Shining, Stephen King’s biggest critical and commercial success yet, seemed like a perfect vehicle. After an arduous production, Kubrick’s film received a wide release in the summer of 1980; the reviews were mixed, but the box office, after a slow start, eventually picked up. End of story? Hardly. In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable cult of Shining devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.
People who read too much into movies
Ridiculously convoluted theories about a good film. A can of tomatoes in the background suddenly means that the film's subtext is about American Indians or some luggage maybe means it's about the holocaust. Silly and annoying documentary.
another movie thats not a movie from itunes, should be a money back button as well as a review button considering how vague the descriptions are
Poorly produced and edited, this movies rambles on with dialogue which is barely audible. Total waste of money.
