Originally published on December 2, 2013: We recently watched "Room 237," a film exploring the many theories, conspiracies, and perceived meanings of Kubrick's "The Shining." In addition to inspiring us to re-watch the film a few more times, it also had us getting lost in a little bit of a Kubrick internet research wormhole. Today's finding is a collection of behind-the-scenes photos from the Shining, our favorite being Kubrick's self portrait with his daughter with Jack Nicholson out of focus.
