The Shining: Jack Nicholson in excelsis
Framing Pictures convenes earlier than usual in the month of April—Friday, April 5, to be precise, at 5 p.m. at the usual venue, Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave. The panel expects to start out talking about Leviathan, the latest from Lucien Castaing-Taylor (Sweetgrass); Room 237, the aggregation of many theories as to what Kubrick's The Shining is really about; and of course, irresistibly, The Shining itself. (Leviathan plays at NWFF; the other two will be on at SIFF.) Admittance is free; beer/wine/designer water, not. RSVP to our hospitality director Mr. Torrance, who just got the gladsome news that Lloyd will attend.
