    doesn't look convincing


    the previous versions:

    The Shining (1980)
    Stephen King's The Shining (1997) tv mini-series



    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    I'd say it's half horror, half mindfuck. See that you get the US version (144 minutes) if you want to give it a whirl.

    I watched the original The Shinning for the first time a few years ago and I felt like I was watching it at a wrong time, I mean, I don't know how to explain this but it feels like it didn't age well, it's strange to watch it nowadays, I wish I had watched it a long time ago for some reason. I felt the same way about watching Blade Runner for the first a few years ago too.

    during the years that have passed between those two viewings, you have changed as a person, your worldview has changed as a result of your experiences in life, therefore you cannot look at it 'with the same eyes' as before

    even watching the same movie twice in a row would yield somewhat different reactions to it

    Funny you should mention Blade Runner, certain editions of it feature an ending with an aerial view of the hillside, which comes from... unused footage of the very same scene at the beginning of The Shining

    Anyway, slikrapid is right (this happens with music as well) and perhaps it's time to rewatch it myself, my last viewing was around seven years ago as I recall. Kubrick movies in general probably need to be seen at least twice to be understood and even that may not be enough, 2001's ending is a particularly serious offender...
