The Shining: Kubrick's Gold Story

Very interesting analysis of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. I'm a big fan of Stanley Kubrick so this was a most interesting analysis for me.


It even goes to briefly mention anti-Fed House Representative Louis T. McFadden.

Doesn't this sound like how things are today?

From Rep. McFadden's speech to the House, 6/10/1932:

“Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.”

Very interesting. Might be good to note this is a 4 part video, just watching the first video people might not get the connection.

I only kept watching b/c I took some film classes in college where we analyzed some of Kubricks other works, so I was generally interested.

Thanks for posting this. One of my favourite films, and very interesting to see an analysis of it.

It's worth looking at interpretations of Kubrick's other works. There are many. All very interesting stuff.

I'm going to look into interpretation of Eyes Wide Shut since it was the weakest of his movies for me. 2001 has and will always be my #1 movie all time.

My favorite part of the Shining analysis (besides the mind blowing Wilson connection) is when Stanley goes "The Dow Jones is down! Buy Gold!"

Look up Eyes Wide Shut + symbolism. See where that takes you.

It's just possible he may have upset some people with that one.
