    Well, this was just silly. I'd much rather have seen a doc about these people who spend so much mental energy grasping at straws over movie symbolism.

    This documentary offers many different perspectives on Kubrick's masterpiece 'The Shining'. There's no doubt that Kubrick is one of the most, if not the most, deliberate filmmakers of all time. No frame is wasted, and everything included in each frame has a world of intention behind it. The viewer must make up his or her own subjective ideas when watching a Kubrick film. You can watch his films at face value or you can attempt to understand what Kubrick is…

    People are crazy. At first I was laughing at the insanity, but then it started to get depressing that there are those out there that have insane stretches of logic to get a ridiculous answer they want to hear.

    Of everything talked about in here, pretty much all of them are simply tiny continuity errors blown up to mean things about the moon or real life ghosts or something. There is only one thing that I agree with, and that…

    As strange as it is, there is something entertaining about watching a man explain how “The Shinning” is Kubrick telling audiences that the footage of the moon landing was faked. However, there is also something incredibly unrewarding about the experience. While some of the theories seem to have more credibility (the Native American theory) than others (the centaur theory) none of them are very cinematic. Everything in “Room 237” could have been done equally interesting on a website, still that…

    so this was my introduction into only what I can describe as advanced film analysis I am or at least thought I was at the top of the movie aficionado spectrum a.k.a movie nerd but this documentary showed me I barely crack the door to the real top of the this scale and I have a lot to learn and lots of movies to rewatch this film was just bursting with excellent points and examples of sub texts upon subtexts…

    2013. Directed by Rodney Ascher.

    A unique documentary that focuses on film fans more than the actual film, Room 237 presents several unique theories on the true mean behind Stanley Kubrick's legendary The Shining.

    There are several theories that are examined:

    One deals with the idea that the entire film is a comment on the murder of Native Americans. There are various Native American motifs throughout the film and the theorist believes that the haunting is a form of supernatural…

    A lot of the theories in the movie are mega dumb, but it's worth watching just to glean all the intricacies that Kubrick put in the Shining. And the forward backward theory might even hold some water.

    When you look long enough at something, you can really find anything in it. If it is actually there or not apparently is secondary.

    If you’re obsessed with Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror masterpiece, The Shining, you owe it to yourself to see this riveting, strange, and frustrating documentary, entitled Room 237, which chronicles the many conspiracy theories and interpretations surrounding the film. I am probably the biggest Kubrick fanatic who ever lived, so when I found out that this documentary existed, it immediately found a place in the number one spot of my “must-see” list for the year. When I finally got around to…
