The Shining is about the Holocaust or the massacre of Native Americans, or perhaps Stanley Kubrick’s admission that he was in on the government’s plot to fake the moon landing. These are just a few of the theories presented by zealous Kubrick devotees in Rodney Ascher’s Room 237. Using voiceover, film clips, animation and dramatic reenactments, the documentary draws viewers into a labyrinthine examination of the hidden meanings of Kubrick’s 1980 classic. “Handsomely produced and never less than hugely entertaining, Ascher’s film is catnip for Kubrickians and critics both professional and otherwise.” (Variety)
