Stanley Kubrick Amerika Serikat, 1980

Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Shining

A typically sure-handed, if ascetic, treatment from this director which conveys the spatial unease created by certain architecture better than almost any other production. The covert references and subtext may well be true but whatever they are, they're subtly hidden beneath the austere Grand Guignol surface with nearly everything here on top-form.
