Stanley Kubrick

‘Room 237′ Review

'Room 237' review
Warner Bros.

The Overlook Hotel does something to people. In Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining,' it drives caretaker Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) mad -- turning his writer's block into full-fledged, kill-your-family insanity. In Rodney Ascher's 'Room 237,' six different critics, historians and fans of Kubrick's horror classic share their own theories about -- and obsessions with -- 'The Shining.' All tell much the same story: they saw the movie once. They couldn't get it out of their minds. They watched it again and again. They couldn't stop. They developed elaborate theories to explain the film's mysteries and to uncover its hidden meanings. They were trapped in the Overlook, lost in its hedge maze, searching for some elusive truth. They still can't get out.

But now, over a decade after Kubrick's death, his 'Napoleon' may be made after all thanks to Steven Spielberg, who wants to bring the late master's epic vision to television.

‘The Shining Forwards and Backwards’ Review

The Shining Forwards and Backwards Review
Warner Bros.

“I'm going to get absolutely wrecked and watch two prints of the 'The Shining' projected over one another, one of which in reverse, and assault my senses to terrifying imagery letting my usual methods of interpreting story get tossed to the seas of synchromysticism.”

That was the plan at Fantastic Fest 2012 and, should the tinfoil hat Warhol-esque experiment known as 'The Shining Forwards and Backwards' ever make itself available to you, I strongly endorse making your open (and perhaps altered) mind available.

Must Watch: Kubrick and the Art of the One-Point Perspective

Stanley Kubrick 2001
Warner Bros.

The so-called "one-point perspective" is used to describe a shot composition which the spatial planes which lead the eye towards a central vanishing point off in the distance (as you see above). Director Stanley Kubrick was a genius at the one-point perspective and included this shot in many of his films. You're going to have to watch this new mashup, which highlights this technique brilliantly.
