The Making of The Shining

“Stanley Kubrick allowed his then-17-year-old daughter, Vivian, to make a documentary about the production of The Shining. Created all originally for the British television show BBC Arena, the documentary offers rare insight into the shooting process of a Kubrick film.” A version of this film with Vivian Kubrick’s commentary can be viewed here

    So fascinating to see the actors ‘outside’ of their roles and how they work to get ‘inside’ of them. Really well done!

    I remember seeing this movie at the drive in when I was a kid. I went with my folks and was supposed to be sleeping in the back seat. Jack scared me to death! I remember thinking that I didn’t EVER want to stay at a hotel EVER!!

    This glimpse into the movie world is neat. It is nice to see that they are real people, with real issues, and real agendas.

    Thank you for sharing!
