So this is a post about bathrooms in Stanley Kubrick’s film ‘The Shining’. Four are used for scenes in the film:
- the bathroom at Torrances’ flat in Boulder, Colorado (Danny talks to Tony);
- the bathroom in Room 237 at the Overlook (Jack encounters a young/old woman);
- the bathroom (okay, toilets) next to the Overlook Ballroom (Jack talks to Grady);
- the bathroom in the Torrances’ Overlook apartment (Wendy is trapped).
Inspired by CJ over at MEROVEE, this might take some time…
*Exactly! Clicky, better give Dear Reader a Song now*
Forwards/ Whilst Jack is at the Overlook having his interview, Wendy and Danny wait for news at home.
Backwards\ Wendy and Danny are fleeing a rampaging Jack at the Overlook hotel.
Notable thing No.1: In the Forwards/\Backwards version of the film, practically every scene has some form of illumination in it – lights, lamps, headlights, shine…
Notable thing No.2: Timing. In this instance, the camera zooms in on the peculiar couple in the bedroom as Tony says ‘Don’t want to’ and Danny’s finger is illuminated.
Part 2 to follow and in keeping with Red Universe Frank’s ‘Eternité’ post, there will indeed be a bush…
