    opinions are like assholes. everybody has one.

    the interesting part was not the "hidden subtext" of the film. what is interesting is seeing how far some people go searching for meaning within a film. it gets pretty absurd. what are clearly continuity errors are taken to ridiculous extremes.

    seriously. the guy with the moon landing theory? fucking absurd. yeah, kubrick was like "i've got this stephen king novel i am adapting.. jack nicholson is the lead.. maybe i'll add some…

    maybe my all time favorite film. peter sellers gives an amazing performance. the entire film is both hilarious and deeply moving at the same time. is chance a genius or a fool? every scene is very subtle in showing that it could be either way. great supporting cast as well. melvyn douglass in particular. this is such a fantastic film, yet i like to turn it off before the ending. i don't want to say that it ruins the film because you can't really base your opinions on 1 scene, but i think the ending takes so much away.
