Mostly Work, But Some Play

For my money, The Shining is the best horror movie ever made. This behind-the-scenes footage is truly amazing. It was shot by Stanley Kubrick's daughter, Vivian, who was 17 at the time. I guess it's been around for a while as a bonus on the DVD, but I hadn't seen it. If you haven't, give yourself 35 minutes. That's how long it is, and I was transfixed the whole time. It begins with Jack Nicholson getting ready to report to the set, which is entertaining enough (choice line: "it's grueling enough without a face full of lamb cutlets."), but it quickly develops into an extraordinary look at the making of the film. Enjoy:
