    This is the documentary about people obsessed with symbolism and hidden meaning in The Shining. I started it totally cynical, and in the first 90 seconds they've completely fucked with my head.

    Yep. Artistic symbolism that appears repeatedly and these freaks are interpreting it in very crazy ways. One guy's deal is that it's an allegory for the Holocaust.

    It might all be over your naturally smart head.

    No, but I'm kind of a lifelong fan of the book and movie version of The Shining, so I should probably get to it.
