Making of The Shining

06.07.2007

I have a feeling I’m not alone on this, but haven’t ‘the making of’ documentaries grown tamer and more formulaic in today’s behind-the-scenes world? There was a time when ‘making of’ documentaries were films in their own right, and captured all the chaos and passion that being on a movie set. I’m thinking specifically of HEARTS OF DARKNESS, shot by Coppola’s wife while he was making APOCALYPSE NOW. Another documentary, this time shot by the filmmaker’s daughter has surfaced on YouTube, as Vivian Kubrick films her father make THE SHINING. In the first 10 minutes alone, you have Jack being Jack and Scatman Crothers in tears, and the doc feels far more authentic than all the made-for-DVD behind-the-scenes docs we get today as special features. This one makes you feel like you’re actually on set. The film is split into four parts on Youtube and we’ve got them all for you right here.

Well put Joblo, couldnt have said it better myself. Enough with the bellyaching you querolous sobs, and cut the writer some slack.

TO ALL BELOW!!

You all _DO_ realize that not everyone has the DVD, right? For people who DON'T have the DVD (yours truly included) this is something "new" and cool that they can check out ONLINE without spending any money.

If you've already seen it, fine...but why bust our writer's balls about it? Just move to the next item up for bid...

Yeah, got this on my Aussie DVD too. There were two versions of the DVD over here though, one with, one without. Maybe Ben had the 'Without' version.
Cool that it's posted on YouTube though, for those that missed out.

Ben Barna are you addicted to posting old news as if new (see my below post)? But it's okay because it's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. Yeah, cry for me...

Benny-Boy, where did the "first look" poster go? ;)

You know the SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK poster you debuted 24 hours after it had already debuted... Ben? Where did your article go? Were you ashamed of your mistake? You shouldn't be, we all make mistakes... Go easy on yourself, it's not your fault. Hey, it's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. It's not your fault. ... There your go, let it all out...

Could have sworn I've seen it, too. I believe James Mason dropping by for a visit, and the miscast Duvall frustrating Kubrick are the highlights. For Kubrick on Scat, see an old Playboy interview w/ Albert Brooks--hilarious.

Is this news being posted as if it's something new? This is already on the DVD.

I'm pretty sure I saw parts of this on a Shining DVD several years ago. I remember it being really intense and he made Shelly Duvall cry.

Two things I learned from this:

1) Kubrick doesn't seem as mythically controlling as I had imagined him to be. He's more like a no-bullshit-let[link] sort of fella. As a director should be.

2) Duvall is a grown up disfigured baby woman.
