A group of Kubrick fans offer their opinions on the inner working of The Shining. Some of their views are interesting; some of them are totally crazy. The most convincing of the arguments would be that Kubrick made his movie about the plight of Native Americans. A not-so-brilliant theory says Kubrick made the film as sort of apology for helping fake America’s moon landing. The documentary serves as a cool testament to seeing something below the surface in a film, and fandom in general. I’ve always liked the movie, but now I want to watch it again and see the puzzles for myself, and then proceed to do that with Kubrick’s other films.
