Before the world obsessed over the details of television shows like Lost and True Detective, film buffs have poured over every detail of Stanley Kubrick's tense masterpiece The Shining. Examining the years of theorizing and speculation, the documentary Room 237 delves into these fan theories, exploring the potential hidden mysteries of the celebrated film. The documentary's soundtrack, composed by Jonathan Snipes and William Hutson, looks to re-create the tension of the original film score, utilizing modular synths to create eerie, swirling soundscapes. Definitely recommended for Kubrick fanatics and synth enthusiasts alike.
