Shelley Duvall: *whines*

Jack Nicholson: *is awesome*
Seriously though, how cool is Jack? I feel like he never causes problems on the set, because he’s just too cool to care that much.
I also recently watched Room 237, which is a bunch of (sometimes ridiculous) interpretations about The Shining as told by 5 film critics. Some of it was fascinating, but…there’s a limit to how long you can listen to a woman interpret a skiing poster as an elaborate minotaur symbol when obviously it’s just a skiing poster.
Read some of the theories here and decide for yourself if it’s worth a watch.
