The cult surrounding Kubrick's The Shining is so interesting that director Rodney Ascher and producer Tim Kirkdecided to make a documentary about it. Their film is called Room 237, and they describe it by saying, “Room 237 is a subjective documentary feature which explores numerous theories about Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and its hidden meanings. This guided tour through the most compelling attempts to decode this endlessly fascinating film will draw the audience into a new maze, one with endless detours and dead ends, many ways in, but no way out. Discover why many have been trapped in the Overlook for 30 years.” 

Are you a big Kubrick fan? Does this one sound interesting to you? Well, good news, because while this teaser that’s been put together for the doc doesn’t offer anything up in the way of footage,Room 237 still has stops to make along the festival circuit in towns like Sitges, Chicago, New York, and London, and recently IFC Films picked up the rights to its North American distribution. One way or another, a screening is likely to be coming your way soon. [via /Film]
