A truly brilliant and scary film from Stanley Kubrick.
I can't praise this film long enough! The Shining is, without doubt, one of Stanley Kubrick's undisputed masterpieces ...
The Shining is considered one of the world's finest horror novels.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Jack talks with Lloyd the bartender for the first time, you can see two errors: the pattern of the bar is lighted glass, wood and then lighted glass again. you can see that at the beginning, Jack sits and the wood part is right in the center of his body, one moment later it's near his left hand, and few moments later it's far away from his left hand.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
