The DVD of the film is available in our Bookshop. (List of available DVDs in Slovene only)

A subjective documentary that explores the numerous theories about the hidden meanings within Stanley Kubrick's film The Shining. The film may be over 30 years old but it continues to inspire debate, speculation, and mystery.

»It started when Tim Kirk sent me an online analysis that was super deep about The Shining. Mind blowing ideas about Zodiac and government conspiracies and Kubrick’s personal life. That’s what got me up and running but for a thousand reasons The Shining was the one that made sense. Kubrick is a more deliberate filmmaker than any other so there’s less reason to think there’s arbitrary decisions. I think the reason The Shining may have generated more of this kind of analysis than many other films, besides the fact that all those meanings are in there, is that it’s the intersection of art and entertainment. It’s clearly an ambitious film where a lot of interesting things are going on but it’s also a movie that people are very happy to watch on Friday night. They’ll watch it again and again because they love it.« (Rodney Ascher)
