It’s no secret that Stephen King, award-winning writer of terrible sex scenes and, much to the continued consternation of Harold Bloom, increasingly an elder statesman of American arts and letters, fucking hated what Stanley Kubrick did to The Shining, which is a really, really good book about how insane it is to be a writer, and an even better book about substance abuse, rage, and irredeemably evil places. Kubrick’s version is really just about Jack Nicholson making crazy faces and accidental/on purpose buried meanings, and you can have all the fondness you want for it as a great scare-flick, but Stephen King thinks you ought to know that, well, it’s kinda, sorta sexist. Just FYI.
