    Interesting but at times seemed like it was clutching at straws. The woman claiming she saw a minotaur in a skiing poster was just being silly.

    Me esperaba un documental sobre cómo se hizo El Resplandor, pero nada más lejos de la realidad: trata del (sobre)análisis que algunas personas han hecho de la obra maestra de Kubrick. Y, dejando de lado idas de olla y cosas que de primeras son bastante cuestionables (¿si pones la película normal y una versión de atrás a adelante a la vez coinciden la estructura de los planos y su significado? Uh, no sé si Kubrick era TAN genio o es…

    Room 237 is a documentary about The Shining in the same way that Ulrich Seidl's Animal Love is a documentary about pets - that is to say, it has plenty to say on the subject, but there is more going on. Saying Room 237 is a documentary about obsession might be closer to the mark, although even that doesn't get the full flavour. It would be a grievous mistake to assume director Rodney Ascher wants you to laugh at all…

    This all documentary could have been a interesting and a great Documentary, but the pasting is messy and the overall movie itself is dull.

    Room 237 is documentary featuring five different points of view - it will lead viewers through a maze that may well bring up more questions than answers.

    All through out this documentary you can hear different people talking out of their ass, because all of the facts and theories in documentary are mostly silly and kind…

    The ultimate companion piece to THE SHINING because of how detailed the conspiracy theorists are on their theories embedded within Stanley Kubrick's iconic horror film. All of the theories (ranging from the credible to the incredulous) are fascinating, but it brings to mind the concise-ness of filmmaking, the need to have an answer for the elaborate myths, when maybe Kubrick was pulling a trick on everyone and saying that there is no answer. The film ROOM 237 itself is expertly…

    Not actually a movie about "The Shining", but a movie about how fans, of any kind, can read way too far into the media they love.

    In which... a fantastic movie is mostly over thought by a bunch of people and someone made a doco out of what little is better than an online video series you could find on YouTube.

    I really like this documentary! From the on-set, it's hard to take any of these theories seriously, but the fun is seeing such a beloved classic deconstructed by those with their own agendas. It seems that all of these people where traumatized by their experience watching The Shining and have found these odd connections to help them coup.
