The Shining (extended version)
Jack Nicholson’s most memorable role, as a writer on the edge of insanity, is a must-see on the big screen.
Dir Stanley Kubrick

Jack Nicholson revels in his terrifying performance as Jack Torrance, the would-be writer and winter caretaker of the vast Overlook Hotel who becomes the minotaur trapped in Kubrick’s supernatural maze, as he descends into madness. Quite possibly the most speculated-upon film ever made, Kubrick made the quintessential psychological horror film on his first attempt. Gloriously disturbing, unforgettable, must-see cinema.
