Sundance 2012: Room 237

To some people, Stanley Kubrick's film THE SHINING set the standard for modern horror cinema. For others, it was the result of a talented filmmaker slacking off. And then there are the ardent fans convinced they've decoded the film's hidden messages of genocide, cabals and the nightmares of history.Rodney Ascher and Tim Kirk made a film about these conspiracy theorists that investigates the act of criticism and what it means to be a fan. They'll join Doug on Wednesday to talk about ROOM 237.

  • Room 237 is part of the New Frontier category at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. It screens on Thursday 26 January at 11:30 p.m. at the Prospector Square Theatre in Park City, and again on Saturday 28 January at 9:15 p.m. at the Holiday Village Cinema in Park City. for more information on the film, visit the Sundance Film Festival web site.
