Stanley Kubrick‘s The Shining is a film many consider among the very finest ever made. Room 237, an independent documentary, seeks to dig deeper in to it, with close inspection of supposed hidden symbols and messages, highlighting several fan theories.
That’s probably one the most intriguing and stylish trailers for a documentary since, well, ever. The minimalistic approach is supremely intriguing and captures your attention right off the bat. Looks like this is something you shouldn’t miss, especially for any fan of Kubrick and/or The Shining.
It aims high, to change the way you look at The Shining forever, and from the response it has received it seems to deliver.
Room 237 has been making the rounds at festivals to rave reviews and will see a wider release next year.
