Some cool theories, but most of them were utterly idiotic. You can see Kubrick's face in the sky at the beginning? Don't make me laugh.

Some people just analyses movies too much. And this movie had plenty of that.

Not Enough Room for 237 Ways to Analyze a Film

5 years ago at Jan 25 3:25
Since "The Shining" is one my favorite films made by one of my favorite filmmakers I naturally found this to be an intriguing documentary to see. Sadly the result is an unfocused effort to take meaning out of the symbolism and elements of the film. There are actually better, shorter, more focused videos online that I recommend watching before his.

Yet, since this is a thing I enjoy ... read more

Description: A subjective documentary that explores the numerous theories about the hidden meanings within Stanley Kubrick's film The Shining. The film may be over 30 years old but it continues to inspire debate, speculation, and mystery. Five very different points of view are illuminated through voice over, film clips, animation and dramatic reenactments. Together they'll draw the audience into a new maze, one with endless detours and dead ends, many ways in, but no way out.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: November (23 movies items)

"First viewing - Nov. 26th After lunch I watched this overrated idiotic doc that focuses on a handful of people's crackpot theories about what The Shining is actually about beyond being a horror movie. It's a lot like reading internet comments about Tool's lyrics, and many of the arguments were basically "well, I study this subject a lot so I saw symbols in the film that connect with it so that's what the film is about." If you're looking hard enough for symbols to justify your beliefs or ideas,"

" 9.5 What to do with a documentary about the movie "The Shining?" The many interpretations and the genius behind Kubrick's direction are good dosages of cinema knowledge. And that's just about it."
