Quote:
If Stanley Kubrick were still alive, Room 237 would make him extremely happy. Directed by Rodney Ascher, the experimental documentary gives the legendary filmmaker a ton of credit, maybe too much at times, as it explores several wild, and not so wild, theories about his 1980 horror masterpiece The Shining.

Some theories, such as the suggestion that the film is a metaphor for the murder of Native Americans, are almost plausible. Others, like that insinuation that Kubrick made the film to clue everyone in that he faked the footage of the Moon landing, are much less believable. But no matter the case, Ascher’s film is a fascinating, funny and incredibly well made ode to a film that’s obviously way more dense than most of us give it credit for. The documentary is an absolute must-see.

Room 237 played as part of the New Frontier category of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival

I saw it at Sundance a few nights ago. There were some really farfetched theories, but it was a very interesting, well-made documentary.

Darn... I was hoping this would be about the 1997 made for TV movie "The Shining" starring Steven Weber, which was a much closer adaptation to the Stephen King novel.

haha, I made that comment as a joke. I remember liking it when it first aired on TV but I rented it a couple of years ago from Netflix and it hasn't aged well.
