    One of the most ridiculous, incoherent and psychologically retarded examinations of a film I've ever witnessed. This is analysis at its worst. Total nonsensical brain diarrhea in documentary form.

    really enjoyed this documentary about the shining, even though the main thing it managed to do was make me wish i was watching the shining.

    I absolutely love The Shining, hell at the moment its at the top of my top 50 list (although it rotates with Se7en and 2001 all the time). I've watched The Shining more times than I care to count, but so many things are pointed out in this that just kind of go, woah I didn't notice that before. Although most of these theories are completely crazy, it's brilliantly compelling, and Kubrick's work interests me to the point that I'll…

    Jan Harlan hates this film and said that Stanley would have done too. It's offensive!!

    I'm all for people sharing what they take away from a film, but this delusional piece of bullsh*t that makes a joke of interpreting modern cinema and paints film fans as overly obsessive individuals who spend their time coming up with the next conspiracy theory about today's culture. Because why wouldn't a paper tray look like an erect penis in a single frame when two characters meet for the first time?

    I love feeling like I'm not the craziest person on earth. 


    They made decent points tho. Especially the moon landing cover up.

    70% of this movie is people talking crazy bullshit.
    20% is wasted time when nothing happens.
    And the last 10% are actually thoughtful eye opening dialogs that make you realise just how deep, throughout and meticulously executed the shining is.
    This film, on the other hand, isn't.
    It does, however, share one trait with the shining.
    It's up to "you" the viewer to figure out what has meaning. And what's just mistakes and bullshit.

    Simply spellbinding examination of fandom, conspiracy, art, mental illness, and the points in which all of those converge to make people believe...SOMETHING.

    You shouldn't necessarily believe any of the totally off-the-wall theories put forth by the unseen cast of speakers here...what matters is that THEY believe what they're saying, and everything that comes with that line of mental reasoning. It's what important works of art are supposed to do, and "The Shining" is a mighty important piece of art indeed.

    Amazing soundtrack as well: haunting, enigmatic and sometimes impenetrable...much like the film itself.

    Film #6 of the "Scavenger Hunt 13 (April 2016)" Challenge
    Task #18. A film directed by an AFI Alumni.

    Well... the subject matter is interesting. That counts for something. Actually that counts for all of the stars. While I can't say I love to sit down and watch The Shining I do respect what it does, the film really is a masterpiece by Stanley Kubrick, and Room 237 is a good tribute to that…
