lmao great movie though, I loved this flick. I'm a bit of a Kubrick obsessive myself, particularly when it comes to The Shining, took a course just focussing on Stan back in film school. So it's a real blast to watch even if some of the theories are seriously reaching (but in an entertaining way). I used to get stoned and think about the Freudian implications and hypnotic visuals, but these guys take it to a whole new, amazingly nutty level. You might be bored by it if you haven't seen The Shining a hell of a lot of times. My favorite bit is probably the whole thing about him creating impossible spaces within the map of the hotel, like the window behind Ullman in his office, or just scratching my head at the strange continuity errors (Kubrick was such a perfectionist it's hard to imagine him making some of these mistakes, like the changing typewriter). As outlandish as some of the theories are Kubrick was undoubtedly a genius, and it's a testament to his genius that his work, intentionally or otherwise, lends itself to so many interesting and varied interpretations.

The office scene is so dope, but after seeing the weird documentary--the cooler scene kind of got to me. I caught on to Kubrick early. It's just the obsessive compulsive aspect that I love. No one captured the senses quite like him. He was a master of lighting too--something that I have no experience in, whatsoever. Total asshole, though.

Kubrick's lighting design is consistently incredible, up to and including Eyes Wide Shut. Barry Lyndon (arguably his most boring and dull movie) is worth it just for the scenes he lit exclusively by candle-light.
The notion that Danny may have opened the walk-in door and set Jack free also blew my hair back. And the Aztec sacrifice bit with Jack tumbling down the stairs.

Big fan of the movie (scariest movie I've seen) and reading the book right now for the first time. The movie/book are quite different from each other, both are great in their own way imo.

Yeah, I thought there were a good number of odd things that were cited to by the documentary. Kind of BS. But as I stated earlier--this is the kind of movie that you never want to end. So it makes sense that someone would want to continue discussing themes.
There was another video stating that Kubrik was trying to show the people that there were alien beings that were in control of the earthly populations...

^ Reading Doctor Sleep next then? Read it the other week. Worthy follow up to The Shining.
Yeah def reading that right after, I've heard good things about it.

One of my favorite lines of all time:
"Gentlemen. You can't fight in here. This is the War Room!"
