    The Shining

    it is immensely upsetting how prevalent the overlap is between people who make films about abuse and abusive directors. stories crafted with such clear intentions being adapted for the screen by men who turn around and commit the very same acts condemned in the narrative- in this case even doing so in the process of making the movie- is something that should never happen again
