Stanley Kubrick‘s screen adaptation of Stephen King’s classic tale of a family man and would-be writer (Jack Nicholson) going mad as winter caretaker of the cursed Overlook Hotel has been called many things. An old-fashioned haunted house movie. A depiction of domestic abuse. The ultimate take on writer’s block. Indiewire recently went so far as to call it the greatest horror film of all time. Ultimately, The Shining is a Kubrick film, which means that some of the most penetrating and complex cinematography, compelling production design and deft editing combine with Nicholson’s outrageous performance to create scenes that have bled into the fabric of pop culture and will haunt you … forever. (USA, 1980, 145 Mins, R, English | Stanley Kubrick)
