if you know me, you probably already know how much praise i have for the shining. this movie is a perfect example of what results when genius and insanity are perfectly blended together. in my opinion the shining can't be classified as horror but is still the most disturbing film ive ever seen. if you're really paying attention, you'll realize how much this film messes with your mind. kubrick is known for his extreme attention to detail and no other film of his exemplifies and shows it more than on the shining. whether it be the color pallet or camera angle of each take, the unexplainable moments that strike confusion, or even the subtle movements in the background that aren't even noticed unless you're looking for it but subconsciously make you feel that something is out of place, every single shot in this film was intentional and meant to give you a feeling of uncertainty and simple creep you out. kubrick literally tortured his team to give the film the exact feeling he was looking for, and it was shown. some shots were literally taken at least 80 times until the actors started acting weird without noticing so that kubrick could keep the strangest looking shots just to make it unsettling and quite difficult to watch. aside from the many theories about hidden messages within the movie such as the holocaust or the moon landing, every single take was genius in its purist form.
