The Shining by Stanley Kubrick

The Shining is a cult horror film directed by Stanley Kubrick and filmed in 1980. It is based on the eponymous novel by Stephen King. The main roles are played by Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd.

Despite getting many negative reviews during the year of release, The Shining regularly appears on lists of the most significant and highly artistic films of the genre. The film is consistently among the top 100 list of 250 best films on IMDb site and occupies the 32nd place in the list of 500 best horror movies according to users of IMDb website. According to a survey of the British magazine Sight & Sound, conducted among film critics and directors, The Shining is recognized as one of the greatest movies in the history.

The plot of the film tells how writer Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) arrives for an interview to the owner of the hotel Overlook, Stewart Ullman (Bari Nelson) to get hired as a caretaker for the winter season. Within five months, he plans to live with his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in an empty hotel, being cut off from the rest of the world by snow blockages, and work on his new novel. Ullman tells him that one of the previous keepers of the hotel, Delbert Grady, became obsessed after a five-month imprisonment and killed his wife and two daughters, and committed suicide. However, the story does not make much of an impression on Jack, and he receives the job.

The family moves to a hotel. Chef Dick Helloran (Scatman Crothers), having the same gift of telepathy as Danny, finds a kindred spirit in the boy and tells Danny that their gift might be called Shining, because they can see more than others. Danny asks if there is anything to be feared in the hotel, and Dick advises him to avoid room 237. Dick gives a clue to the film – he said to the boy that some events can leave a trace, such as smell of scorched toast. A month later, Jack’s work on the novel slows down; he becomes irritable and begins to suspect that the root of all evil is his wife.

Jack wants to have a drink and he goes to a bat in a hotel, where he suddenly finds a bartender Lloyd, and an empty bar becomes full of drinks. The bartender pours him a drink and Jack after not finding the money in a pocket does not notice that he sold his soul for the drinks.

Gradually he becomes to have an idea that family problems should be dealt with once and for all.
