The Spatial Psychology of ‘The Shining’

July 24, 2011

Rob Ager’s (obsessive?) analysis of The Shining suggests the spatial inconsistencies in Kubrick’s film are blatant and not just commonplace errors in continuity. I’m uncertain if I completely agree with him, but it’s an interesting peek into the film’s set design.

I’m new to Ager’s essays, but a look at a few of his other videos deconstructing films reveals an equally in-depth approach. Ager has also just created a horror film, Turn in Your Grave, and won me over with this comment on his blog about Christopher Smith’s Triangle — a film that made a far greater impression on me than Nolan’s Inception.
