    I really enjoyed your review! Kubrick is just incredible at what he does. I agree that the environment he makes is so creepy. It’s funny, how a creepy feeling can last longer than an outright scare. There’s a YouTube video that actually talks about that feeling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dv8KroxoAhk&t=552s

  2. It’s funny you mentioned Shelley Duvall’s performance being lacking, because I wrote a paper on New Hollywood and The Shining and one of my highlights was about Duvall’s performance being surprisingly good since she was able to stand up to Nicholson’s performance.

    I just find it interesting how different opinions are sometimes.

    Great review!
