"Kubrick's demise starts here. Nicholson is way over the top and poorly directed by Kubrick. There's no question that Nicholson is one of Hollywod's finest and that SK is one of the 20th century greats. But the fashion of liking The Shining is usually from the Bourgeoisie of present-day students of film. To like Transformers is not a sin either. Strange it seems to me how The Shining can command a place above Paths Of Glory, Dr. Strangelove, 2001 or Barry Lyndon."
