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

Die Hard 2 (1990)
[Stuart realizes who he's dealing with]
Col. Stuart:
Oh, McClane. John McClane. The policeman hero who saved the Nakatomi hostages. I read about you in People Magazine. You seemed a bit out of your league on Nightline, I thought.
John McClane:
Hey, Colonel. Blow me! How much drug money is Esperanza paying you to turn traitor?
Col. Stuart:
I think Cardinal Richilieu said it best. 'Treason is merely a matter of dates'. This country has to learn that it can't keep cutting off the legs of men like General Esperanza. Men who have the guts to stand up against Communist aggression.
John McClane:
And Lesson #1 starts with killing policemen. What's Lesson #2, the neutron bomb?
Col. Stuart:
[Stuart intends to crash a plane] No. I think we can come up with something in between. Watch this!
