The shining 3

A departure from the Stephen King novel on which its based, this horror film directed by Stanley Kubrick is legendary as much for the lore surrounding its making as the impressive final product. The reception on its release was mixed, but it is now viewed as a masterpiece. The movie stars Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall as a couple who become winter caretakers of the remote Overlook hotel along with their psychically-gifted son, Danny. The striking visuals, seamless editing and groundbreaking use of Steadicam camera help viewers feel how isolation and monotony can strain people to the breaking point.
