The Shining (El Resplandor)

de Stanley Kubrick


THE AMERICAN VERSION WILL BE SCREENED, UNRELEASED IN SPAIN AND THE REST OF EUROPE AND CONTAINING 29 EXTRA MINUTES OF FOOTAGE.Two years ago we celebrated the 40th anniversary of a masterpiece of science fiction, 2001: A Space Odyssey. This year we're blowing out the thirty candles of The Shining, a masterpiece of horror. Because the thing is that our sadly-missed Stanley Kubrick turned each one of his genre approaches into a cornerstone, and with his elegant adaptation of Stephen King's novel he achieved the impossible: transform each of its shots into an icon.


Stanley Kubrick

Meticulous and tremendously innovative filmmaker, he spans half of the 20th century with his cinema and revolutionized all types of genres with films like Killer’s Kiss (55), 2001: A Space Odyssey (68), The Shining (80) or, his last movie, Eyes Wide Shut (99).
