The Shining, Hosted by Alec Baldwin The Hamptons International Film Festival and Guild Hall present Now Showing Classic Screening
Stanley Kubrick‘s screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining has been called many things. An old-fashioned haunted house movie. A depiction of domestic abuse. The ultimate take on writer’s block. Indiewire recently went so far as to call it the greatest horror film of all time. Ultimately, The Shining is a Kubrick film, which means that some of the most penetrating and complex cinematography, compelling production design and deft editing combine with Jack Nicholson’s outrageous performance to create scenes that have bled into the fabric of pop culture and will haunt you, forever.
