Did anyone here see the doc room 237? I watched it last night. It's a view into some of the more batshit crazy interpretations of Kubrick's take on the shining. Fake moon landing confessions, holocaust analogies, and other themes are explored. It made me realize what an SOB Kubrick is based on some key images and placements in the movie that seem to be directed specifically at King. Specifically, the semi that has crushed the red volkswagon (the color of the protagonist's car in the book) as seen by the yellow VW (the color of the protagonist's car in the movie) whilst driving up the snowy road. Apparently this was Kubrick marking his territory or some such. An interesting movie, though. People can pick on the most minute details and run with them.
