"Room 237" Takes a Shining to Kubrick Fanaticism - Public Radio's The Dinner Party Download by The Dinner Party Download published on 2013-03-29T22:07:53Z Lots of films have a ‘cult’ following, but the fanaticism surrounding Stanley Kubrick’s horror masterpiece “The Shining” rises to another level entirely. Filmmaker Rodney Ascher turned his lens on ‘Shining’ obsessives…their theories and thought-processes. The result is the critically-lauded documentary “Room 237”; it comes out in NYC this week before expanding in April, and is available on iTunes. Rodney chats with Rico about art and analysis, monomania, and Kubrick’s (theoretical) moonlighting. -- The Dinner Party Download (www.dinnerpartydownload.com) is a smart, funny public radio show about everything excellent in culture, from the company that brings you "Marketplace."
