Room 237 (2012)

What do the following all have in common? Native American genocide, the Holocaust, fake moon landings, sex, the number 42… give up? The movie “The Shining” of course! This documentary is one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in a while. You hear a group of people talk about their theories of what Stanley Kubrick hid in his film. My favorite was the lady that couldn’t stop talking about a window in the managers office. It’s such an amazing window, man! (I added the Man for wacko emphasis). Some of this stuff sounds pretty legit when they talk about it and then you hear a lady talk about how a skiing poster is actually a picture of a Minotaur and it loses you. I will watch the Shining just to take a look at some of these things, but man… these people need better hobbies than to map out the whole Overlook Hotel just to make sure the window placement works out. Sheesh.

62/100
