Room 237
Rodney Ascher, 2013
USA | Format: DCP | 103 minutes

After the box office failure of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick decided to embark on a project that might have more commercial appeal. The Shining, Stephen King’s biggest critical and commercial success yet, seemed like a perfect vehicle. After an arduous production, Kubrick’s film received a wide release in the summer of 1980; the reviews were mixed, but the box office, after a slow start, eventually picked up. End of story? Hardly. In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable cult of Shining devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.

“An amazing experience…a veritable Kubrickian Da Vinci Code…its criticism infused with the power of conspiracy theory.” —Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“A head-spinning tour of the Overlook Hotel." —Steve Dollar, Wall Street Journal

“The best nonfiction film I’ve seen all year. It introduces a new way to experience and consider movies.” —Chuck Klosterman, Grantland

Venue: Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center
