Desc:The Shining was really about the gold standard. Takes a while to get there, but it's worth it.

When I was in 10th grade, we had to do presentations on various elements from the Periodic Table.

I did a miniature remake of The Shining, and had to explain good ol' Au. I'd KILL for that tape right now and I don't know what happened to it.

Planned to drop out after getting a feel for it 5 minutes in, had to watch the whole thing straight through.

Truly, an interesting beard grown mangy from lack of Occam's Razor. Interesting though.

And after reading
http://www.collativelearning.com/the%20shining.html

I thought it was all about little Jack planning the murder of his father over sexual abuse.

and after reading http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/luna/luna_apollomissions10.htm and other spots it was about him faking the moon landings.

Man, Kubrick works on so many levels...

Actually, never mind, that first analysis is from the same guy... weird.

Same guy, huh?
I guess he found a better cockamamie theory for his non-accredited dissertation.

Thanks for those links though.
And I'm painfully entertained by the idea that all of a great filmmaker's continuity errors are moments of transcendent genius with a secret message.

So ... is this insane or not? Because I honestly can't tell. I'm not a goldbug but I think much of the criticism of the fed is valid even if the conclusions are questionable. I have NO IDEA if the dot-connecting about the movie is well-founded or not.

you had to pay attention

Who gives a fuck? Stan wasn't some prophet sent from the sky. He's just a film director. He didn't possess some secret divine code left for future generations to crack.

Will, it makes no sense at all. It's a tenuous, extremely defensive set of arguments with paper-thin justification.

This is what happens when directors don't include commentary on the DVD.
