See this film: The Shining @ the MFA

Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980) is the happy hunting ground for those prone to byzantine, if not paranoid, movie interpretations (the upcoming documentary Room 237 explores just a few of these). So it's well worth watching again no matter how many times you've already seen the kid riding the Big Wheel down the endless Overlook Hotel corridors, or the flirty, naked, decomposing woman in the tub, or the creepy Diane Arbus twins, or the diabolical bartender, or Jack Nicholson with a grin and an axe saying, "Heeere's Johnny!"
