The Shining Code: A moon truther explanation of the film and the symbolism in it...

There is a lot of intended symbolism in The Shining, but this explanation in the video below is nonsense. Of course the Apollo references (and I agree they are there) could be (and are more likely) mythological references.

Still, this video immediately blow is strangely fascinating to watch (despite by disagreement with his conclusions) given it is dissecting a great film scene by scene...

Kubrick made the material his own. Metaphors of genocide and man's inhumanity to man are the bigger themes Kubrick was making with this film.  So are father son dynamics.  So why I disagree with the interpretation of the two videos in this post, they do catch intentional symbolic references that Kubrick was making.

A different take on the symbolism in the film.  If you do not have an hour plus for the video above, the video below is just six minutes (and deals with spatial anomalies).
