Minotaur? Mine's a pint. I always liked you Lloyd, you were always the best.I even have some sympathy with the guy who has spent so long thinking about The Shining that he now feels trapped in the Overlook Hotel. But continuity errors spun out as conspiracy theories I don't buy (probably because I'm not rooted in the distrust generated by the American political system which constantly spawns conspiracy theories). So Room 237 is a good film, but is it a great one? How can anyone claim to make a serious commentary on The Shining without even mentioning the most notable criticism of the film to date (The Simpsons, Treehouse of Horror V, 6(6)The Shinning, 1994).
Homer, it's Moe. Uh, look, some of the ghouls and I are a little concerned the project isn't moving forward.While overprojecting the film running backwards and forwards simultaneously is interesting, the spurious correlations generated are nowhere near as informative as intercutting the film with Groening's critique:
So as I sit looking out of my impossible window counting the cars in the car park, I conclude that you should go and watch Room 237, it's a good film. But don't take it too seriously. And make sure you watch The Shining first.
