    90% of these theories are probably not true.

    Some were insightful, but the majority of these theorists were definitely reaching and over-crediting Kubrick for things that basically weren't there. I love finding symbolism in film, especially trying to find meaning to Kubrick's masterpieces, but a lot of these are just reaching way too far.

    I was looking forward to this based on its great reputation and my love of 'The Shining,' but I found it very frustrating. Before too long, it felt like I was cornered at a party by an extremely obnoxious guest and forced to smile and nod through his bullshit. I didn't learn anything from this movie except that there are some people out there with ideas that are out-there to the point of delusion. I'd say don't waste your time.

    Overall: Taking an interesting movie already, "Room 237" takes disembodied voices with their own theories on "The Shining", but sometimes runs maybe too far into strange ideas. Without Kubrick there to confirm (which he probably wouldn't), some, even most of the theories seem almost pointless.

    Casi un tratado filosófico sobre la película de Kubrick y su obra en general. A veces interesante, otras veces una crítica posmoderna con todo lo que esto conlleva (muchas licencias, muchos desvaríos, mucha creación a partir de la reflexión metafílmica). Curiosa.

    Ich fands gehörig langweilig - nicht wegen den verschwurbelten Theorien sondern wegen des Zusammenschnitts, der leider nicht darauf abzielt, die jeweiligen Hypothesen nahvolziehbar zu präsentieren, sonder im Gegenteil, sie zu einem "großen Ganzen"(eigenen Werk) zu amalgamieren.

    Loved it. Need to rematch for all of the craziness to seep in.

    Watched as a double feature with 2001. This is a great film each time I've seen it. Really fascinating, funny, and inspiring about filmmaking.
