Stanley Kubrick is a director, whose works such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, cause divide amongst many people. Some like his films, others do not and much the same as any piece of artwork – very subjective and evokes a myriad of feeling through the heart and minds of people. My favorite Kubrick film is The Shining. Haunting, paralyzingly visual, and edged with creep – it is no wonder someone has finally labored a documentary which explores the film in depth.
In ROOM 237, we hear from people who believed they have decoded the far-reaching theories, hidden symbols and messages buried in the late director’s film. Carefully examining THE SHINING forwards and backwards, ROOM 237 is equal parts captivating, provocative and pure pleasure. A must see for movie buffs of all ages.
