    Figured I'd go ahead and put it in Too Hot since it contains such incendiary figures and subjects as Ayn Rand, Jesus, Native Americans, and eating disorders. But it's pretty entertaining and I suspect accurate in at least a couple of instances.

    I'm especially intrigued by "The Shining" as I consider Kubrick the undisputed master and doubt that anything in a movie of his is incidental.

    There's whole movie on meanings of the Shining - "Room 237". The native American theory is just one of many theories.

    Indeed, and I enjoyed that too. If I recall it properly, the "impossible" geometry of the hotel is pretty interesting. The stuff about "confessing" to Apollo 11...hmmm...not too sold on that one, although I think it's fun to speculate.
