The Shining (Kubrick, 1980): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.15pm
Stanley Kubrick classic is on an extended run at BFI Southbank and
screens from Wednesday 31 October to Friday 30 November. I am including
tonight's screening because the film is preceded by a discussion with
director Ben Wheatley, critics Michel Ciment and Kim Newman and
Kubrick's longstanding collaborator Jan Harlan entitled The Shining:
Horror's Greatest Achievement? The event is chaired by producer Tanya
Seghatchian and you can find more details here.
If you want to read an intelligent discussion on the movie, and a good introduction to tonight's discussion here is one by long-time fan Jonathan Romney in the Independent on Sunday.
Here is the trailer.
