Room 237

United States | 2012 | Rodney Ascher

Room 237

One of the nuttiest, funniest, most jaw-dropping (and most acclaimed) films of the year played too briefly in Cleveland. Room 237 refers to a mysterious room in the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, and this new movie explores the hidden meanings of that 1980 horror classic. In voiceover narration, five obsessed fans relay five very different (and elaborate) interpretations of the movie. On screen, film clips, maps, diagrams, etc. support these often outlandish theses. "Even more than The Shining itself, [Room 237] places you right inside the logic of how an insane person thinks." -Entertainment Weekly. "An ode to movie love at its most deliriously unfettered." –The NY Times.
