We all know that Kubrick's the Shining is very different than King's. There's no debating that. But I think Kubrick's version is just as great and stands on its own as a reinterpretation of King's work.
But one thing that troubles me is the last scene when we see Jack in one of the old black and white photos.
Is Jack reincarnated after every death and in every life drawn back to the Overlook? Or are we being told that the Overlook owns Jack's soul and won't let him go even in death?
I'd be interested in what others think.
