"Wendy, I'm home. Wendy? ...Darling, I'm not gonna hurt you...
I'm not going to hurt you I just want to smash your brains in."
The Shining is a work of horrific and mind-bending art. From the alluring soundtrack to the patterns on the floor; there is detail bleeding into every shot of this film. Nicholson's performance is demented perfection and is simply terrifying to watch. Director Stanley Kubrick is the definition of a visionary. Kubrick has an idea. his vision, and he works magic to get it on screen. You can see this through all his works, 2001, Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket, all unique and envisioned by the mastermind that is Stanley Kubrick. Shelley Duvall's obvious horror wasn't all talent. Kubrick put that fear in her. When you watch this movie you'll feel the same way she did. What he did wasn't right or humane at all. Though Duvall looks back and says she's glad it happened.
