Video thumbnail for vimeo video Watch Scenes from 'Fight Club' Without Tyler Durden & 'The Shining' Without Delbert Grady - No Film SchoolIf you haven’t seen David Fincher’s Fight Club, it’s probably a good idea to either watch it right now or stop reading this post immediately.

What do writers think about the end result of their stories? Stephen King gave his opinion of The Shining 2 years before its release in a 1978 article from Cinefantastique, talking about the direction in which Stanley Kubrick took it in terms of casting and content.

Room 237The documentary Room 237 has been called a “DIY mashup” of the many theories put forward over the years as interpretations of Stanley Kubricks’s 1980 horror classic, The ShiningAnd there is good reason for viewers to puzzle over the film 33 years after its release: The Shining tends to be opaque, even though its corridors are well-lit. I recently found what is arguably the most exhaustive examination of how Kubrick adapted Stephen King’s novel into the script he wrote with Diane Johnson.
