Why did Kubrick cut down "The Shining" for international release?

  1. A sick, twisted but classy party. Sounds interesting to me.

    The only shot I don't really think is great is of the skeletons in chair. Kinda weak. Kinda of a cheap spook house effect. I'm really surprised Kubrick used it and didn't insist on something better.

    Spread across and entire continent and I still haven't seen that version! I bet it does feel snappier, but I also like the US cut.

    There other earlier scenes that hint at the possibility of it. But then there are a lot of things in the film that hint at many possible sub texts. Which is part of what is so good about the movie.

    Sexual abuse? I don't think so, either. Where are there hints on that in the film?

    I didn't say it, but I felt it was alluded to in previous posts, so I say out with it people. Who believes this and where is the evidence. I am all ears because I am intrigued.
     
  8. Don't bother, there is no evidence.
