I didn’t know until this moment that the movie “The Shining” is something I find so wonderful and terrifying that I can’t bring myself to look away.
For some weeeeird reason it’s on BBC America right now. I am clutching the remote anxiously, but I can’t bring myself to change the channel.
Is it because the Overlook hotel is modeled after a hotel I know in real life (the Ahwanee)? Or is it because Jack Nicholson is magically wicked?
We may never know.
