Crazy Diamond

In 1980, The Shining came to theaters, forever destroying the idea of "getting away with the family." Shot by the notoriously obsessive perfectionist Stanley Kubrick (holding the record for most takes with dialogue: 127, poor actors) and utilizing the steadicam for the first time, operated by the inventor of the contraption that would dominate future filmmaking, it is a story of madness, haunted hotels, not being very cool to your wife or child, and an always impeccably dramatic and hilarious Jack Nicholson. It's also a moral tale: if you choose to be a writer, you'll inevitably go insane and kill your family.
