The Shining Apollo 11

Today, Rodney Ascher's "Room 237" arrives in theaters (review here), and it deliver an outrageous serving of theories around Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" that position the masterpiece as anything but a horror film. With the Holocaust, the treatment of Native Americans and sexual abuse among the many topics discussed as the "real" meaning behind the movie, one other popular interpretation is that the "The Shining" is Kubrick's confession of sorts that he was involved with faking the moon landing. It's far fetched to say the least, but if you really want to dig deep into that notion, well, you certainly can.

Michael Wysmierski -- also featured in "Room 237" -- has put together a documentary/visual essay entitled "The Shining Code 2.0" that spends nearly eighty minutes making an argument that the Apollo 11 is more than just something on Danny's sweater. To say it reaches at times would be an understatement, but you're likely not going to find a more comprehensive presentation of this theory (even if longtime Kubrick associate Leon Vitali dismisses it outright). Watch below. [The Seventh Art]

    Oh my god I am obsessed with this. I want to decode this decoding documentary because it is brilliant. The 'seduction' part is 100% pervy and creepy. Thank you, The Playlist, for bringing this into my life.

    Saw this video a few months ago. Very interesting, but also a little reaching. Still very interesting video if you're nuts about The Shining!

    This "film" is nothing more than a poorly done PowerPoint presentation. And its ideas are far fetched and ridiculous. It does not deserve to be mentioned here unless you guys are about to start covering all conspiracy theory "films" on YouTube.
