Was Stanley Kubrick's 1980 screen version of "The Shining" meant to be more than a representation of Stephen King's story about madness at an isolated inn? Theories to that effect have existed for years, and this documentary collates and dissects several of them.
Scholars who have linked the movie's approach to such events as the Holocaust and the first lunar landing discuss their views, with dramatic re-creations among the techniques used. Clips from such other Kubrick films as "Lolita," "A Clockwork Orange" and "Eyes Wide Shut" also are included. *** (Not rated: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
