Truly The Shining
, as much of Stanley Kubrick's filmography, incredibly rich with layers upon layers of meaning, is a movie that keeps on giving after 30 years.
From the same author: Alchemical Kubrick 2001: The Great Work on Film
for those who wonder about the above capitalization of The Great Work, in alchemy and hermetism, The Great Work (or, in Latin, Magnum Opus), is the term used for the trasmutation of base matter into gold, and -by extension- for the hermetic spiritual transformation.
