THE SHINING – HOSTED BY THE BUCKNELL FILM CLUB!
Stanley Kubrick (U.S. 1980) 144 min. DCP. With Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd.
Kubrick’s iconic horror film for adults is remembered best for Jack Nicholson’s screwball performance as a raging psychopath novelist-hotel caretaker – and for those terrifying twins. It’s also notable for its use of then innovative Steadicam technology to glide around the supernaturally charged Overlook Hotel, and as a mordant riff on Stephen King’s more straightforward bestselling novel; the author himself disavowed the film, despite its power as a primal nightmare of family dysfunction.

“ A majestically terrifying movie, where what you don’t see or comprehend shadows every move the characters make.” — Martin Scorsese
