Room_237It’s competition time again at Blueprint: Review. Our wonderful friends over at Metrodome Releasing have offered us 3 copies of the critically acclaimed documentary Room 237 to give to 3 of our lucky readers. The film has been a festival favourite, showing a multitude of obsessively constructed theories about the meanings behind Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

Details of how to enter are below, but first here’s more on the film from its press release:

A head-spinning testimony to The Shining’s Power” 5* Kevin Harley – Total Film

“A celebration of the pleasures of cinema” Dazed and Confused

5* Ian Freer – Empire

Many cult movies have their own radical interpretations but none as rich and far-ranging as Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING.

In ROOM 237, we hear from people who believed they have decoded the far-reaching theories, hidden symbols and messages buried in the late director’s film. Carefully examining THE SHINING forwards and backwards, ROOM 237 is equal parts captivating, provocative and pure pleasure. A must see for movie buffs of all ages. Directed by Rodney Ascher.

ROOM 237 had its worldwide premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and played in Directors Fortnight the Cannes Film Festival.

DVD Release date 11th March 2013

    Kubrick was desperate to see what challenge he’d been given for the next round of charades as he was a firm believer that all work and no play makes Stanley a dull boy!

    No matter how many times Jack teased him, Stanley always hoped that, one day, he’d finally get to see that revealing snap of Angelica Huston.

    “As long as no-one else enters this competition in the next three weeks I am assured of winning” thought the cunningly lazy entrant to himself (or herself) ((entrant not pictured))

    Stanley rewrote the ‘Jack kisses the sexy nude lady’ scene shortly after realising that there are in fact no Monopoly Chance cards requiring him to do naked star jumps in the snow for 45 minutes.

    A bemused Stan watches on as, thanks to the carpets, Jack endures another heavy acid flashback.

    Elrond can’t believe how few lines Peter Jackson has given women in over twenty hours of hobbit hocum, maybe they were Overlooked
