Room 237(2013)

The Shining is absolutely one of my All-time favorite films; so a documentary about Kubrick's intended hidden meanings seemed like a fascinating thing to see. But what you get from Room 237 is not exactly that. Rather, what you are left with is an entirely different film about obsessive cinephilles taking their love of this masterpiece way too far. They come off as crackpot conspiracy theorists with talk of staged moon landings, Nazis, Native Americans, and more. It is interesting to hear how convinced these people seem to be of their 'revelations' that came from years of careful study, but all in all, this isn't a very good movie. ~ B-
