Movie-mad documentary turns theoretical critics into conspiracy theorists
By Devin D. O’Leary
Room 237—the puckish, reflexive, Escher-like documentary by Rodney Ascher—interviews several assumedly learned people who have spent waaaay too much time watching Stanley Kubrick’s loose adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel The Shining. These dedicated folks have developed various, often conflicting theories about the 1980 film and its hidden “meaning.” Some theories are perfectly plausible, ohers are far-fetched and some just plain looney.
