Trailer zur The Shining-Doku Room 237


Vor ein paar Monaten noch fuhr ich selbst auf der Straße im Opening und sah den Film am Tag der Schließung für die Winterpause in genau so einem Hotel wie dem Overlook, aber auch ohne diese einmaligen Erfahrungen hat Kubricks The Shining einen Platz in meinem Herzen. Ich bin ein großer Fan des Genres ‘Movies about Movies’ und daher bin ich gespannt, welche neuen Erkenntnisse Room 237 zu bieten hat.

After the box office failure of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick decided to embark on a project that might have more commercial appeal. The Shining, Stephen King’s biggest critical and commercial success yet, seemed like a perfect vehicle. After an arduous production, Kubrick’s film received a wide release in the summer of 1980; the reviews were mixed, but the box office, after a slow start, eventually picked up. End of story? Hardly. In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable cult of Shining devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.
