A man, his son and wife become the winter caretakers of an isolated hotel where Danny, the son, sees disturbing visions of the hotel’s past using a telepathic gift known as “The Shining”. The father, Jack Torrance, is underway in a writing project when he slowly slips into insanity as a result of cabin fever and former guests of the hotel’s ghosts. After being convinced by a waiter’s ghost to “correct” the family, Jack goes completely insane. The only thing that can save Danny and his mother is “The Shining”.

The Shining is arguably the film in which Nicholson truly hones the manic, unhinged persona he’s become so well known for.

It would take a book to examine and defend the film's strong points and drawbacks. If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to watch it alone with the lights off, with no interruptions, and make sure that it's raining.

Think Silence of the Lambs… but better. Kubrick tells a story here that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you scratching your head. This is pretty typical of a Kubrick but in my eyes that’s a very good thing.
