Hi Bryan Here….

Now most of you know I am a HUGE fan of Kubrick’ work.  Anything related to the director, I want to read, watch, and cherish.  There was a documentary that premiered at Sundance recently entitled ‘Room 237′.  It is a documentary on the Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ movie.  Not the one made by his daughter that is shown on the DVD, but rather a different type of documentary that explores the insane conspiracy theories and subtext of the “real meaning” of ‘The Shining’.

The documentary was made by Rodney Ascher and some of the crazy conspiracy theories I have even heard and read about myself over the years.  One of the big ones is that Kubrick actually filmed Apollo Moon landing on a sound stage which means we never really landed on the moon and that he was angry about it, so he told the world in a subtle message.  Another theory suggests the film was an anti-holocaust film.

 

The film will make the rounds at the festivals and IFC will put it in theatres and give it a VOD release later this year.  The sooner the better.  Can’t wait to see this.

Movie Quotes

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
Jesse James:
[motioning to Bob] Sit over here closer, Kid.
[begins massaging Bob's neck]
Jesse James:
Charley, you'll stay with the animals. Me and The Kid will walk into the bank just before noon. Bob will move the cashier away from the shotgun that's under the counter and I'll creep up behind that cashier and cock his chin back like so...
[snaps Bob's head back, sticks a knife to his throat]
Jesse James:
I'll say 'How come an off-scouring of creation like you is still sucking air when so many of mine are in coffins?' I'll say 'How'd you reach your twentieth birthday without leaking out all over your clothes?' And if I don't like his attitude, I'll slit that phildoodle so deep he'll flop on the floor like a fish.
[Jesse let's Bob go, begins to laugh hysterically]
Jesse James:
My God, what just happened? I could hear your gears grinding- rrr,rrr,rrr-and your little motor wondering, 'My Gosh, what's next, what's happening to me?' You were precious to behold, Bob. You were white as spit in a cotton field!
