Many cult movies have their own radical interpretations but none as rich and far-ranging as Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING. In ROOM 237, we hear from people who believed they have decoded the far-reaching theories, hidden symbols and messages buried in the late director's film. Carefully examining THE SHINING forwards and backwards, ROOM 237 is equal parts captivating, provocative and pure pleasure. A must see for movie buffs of all ages.
Director: Rodney Ascher

"One of the great movies about movies." - Rob Nelson, VARIETY (full review here)
Rodney Ascher’s Room 237 might be the best film I’ve seen at Sundance this year... The film expresses, better than any movie I can think of right now, the feeling of being lost inside the world of a film, and by extension being lost inside the world of film." - Bilge Ebiri, reviewer for NEW YORK MAGAZINE
