Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror film 'The Shining' continues to inspire debate and speculation more than 35 years since its release.
In 'Room 237' filmmaker Rodney Ascher examines a selection of compelling, outlandish and wacky theories from some of the most fanatical Kubrick obsessives. Through voice over, film clips, animation and dramatic reenactments, Acher's beguiling homage to Kubrick's unsettling film is a must-see for fans of the director.
