Ok..so I just saw the documentary movie Room 237 that analyzes and talks about the movie The Shining but Stanley Kubrick. I'm a movie buff, and I
love Kubricks movies so I was curious about this documentary. I was obviously aware of the many levels of meaning and depth, puzzles and riddles, that
Kubrick places in his movies, and was also aware of some of the more obvious 'hidden' meanings in The Shining. Particulary the critique towards the
massacre of native americans.
Anyway....I'm also a 'believer' in moon conspiracy theory, and believe that man has been contacted, and is in contact with other beings. We all
know about the moon conspiracy and how one of the theories is that Kubrick was involved in the staging of the moon landing. What I personally didnt
know about was some of the startling clues in the Shining which not only seem to support the moon landing hoax, but also could be interpreted as
Kubrick literally telling us that we have also made contact with another species.
Follow my train of though for a sec.....so...(if you havent seen the movie, you wont understand what I'm about to write)....There are 2 main scenes
that I want to talk about that both involve Room 237. Room 237 is where the hostile 'presence' resides.
In the first of these 2 scenes Danny (the son) is playing on the carpet in the corridor close to room 237. The pattern of the carpet is a collage of
orange, brown&red hexagons. These patterns resemble the very similarly shaped birds eye view of a launching pad. Danny is sitting in the centre of one
of these hexagons, he has lined up his toy cars, when from in front of him a round white cue ball come rolling in along the brown pattern which seems
almost like a small path to Danny. Notice Danny is wearing a blue sweater with a large white Nasa rocket on it. At this point Danny looks up, and when
they cut back to a wider view of Danny on the carpet mysteriously Danny is now sitting with the pattern of hexagons turned upside down.....the path
leading into the hexagon is now on the otherside of Danny, as if to state that the path is now blocked off. This is NOT a mistake because 1. his cars
are lined up on the wrong side 2. Nothing in a Kubrick movie is done by accident. At this point Danny stands up slowly....hence the rocket launches
and starts its journey to 'room 237'. Room 237 is marked on the door key chain as 'ROOM N°237'.....this might be reaching...but what other words
can be made up with the letters in r 'O O M N' °237? Another interesting point is why 237? the textbook distance from earth to moon anybody? 237
Ok....so so far this is pretty much summed up what they say in the movie.....but I would like to take it a little further. Ok...so if we accept that
Danny is in fact symbolising the launch and journey to the moon, and Room N°237 is symbolising the moon.....then what does 'the presence' inside
the room symbolise?
The carpet in 237 is a similar pattern to that in the corridor, but not straight regular angles, its all rounded. Not orange, brown & red, but black,
blue & purple.....similar but different. Perfect for a earth vs. moon comparison. And what happnes to Danny when he goes in the room and meets the
presence? We dont see it but we know that he gets attacked by the hostile presence.
Danny's father, Jack Nicholson, has made a deal with the Mr.Grady...who represents the voice of the presence in the hotel. When he goes to
investigate what attacked his son in room 237 he enters knowing that he is going to meet someone or something. He examines the room, and when he goes
into the bathroom A CURTAIN IS PULLED BACK and he sees a beautiful woman in the bathtub. He is drawn to her (the presence) and kisses 'her'. Thus
formally making a deal. At this point he opens his eyes and sees the presence for what it really is....a disgusting, rotting corpse. See what I'm
getting at here???
Danny could be symbolising mankind, the father could be representing the deviant/corrupt elite that made a deal with the 'presence' on the moon.
