Much has been written about Stanley Kubrick's THE SHINING in the near thirty-three years that have transpired since the film's release.  Essays have been written opining that the film is really about the idea of play, and that the members of the Torrance Family are just the latest participants in a never-ending go-round of Sisyphus-inspired terror; others have claimed that it is a thinly-veiled dig at white settlers commandeering the land of the New World from the Native Americans (represented thematically in the Colorado Lounge in the film); others have made a fuss about mirror images and the duality of man, a common motif in Kubrick's other works; and still others consider it to be the horror film's answer to the director's own 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and one's desire to find the key to immortality. Whatever your view of the film is, there is no denying that it has tremendous staying power and has influenced the lives of many filmmakers.  Two such people are producer Tim Kirk and director Rodney Ascher whose long-awaited documentary ROOM 237 centers on the ideas that five narrators people have about the film and what they have taken away from it.


Now making the rounds from city to city, Mr. Kirk and Mr. Ascher are holding Q & A's following certain screenings of the film which can be found at the film's official website.  For those of you who cannot wait to see it, it is also available on Video On Demand (VOD) from various cable operators.  Check your local cable company for availability.
