So, finally, I watched the Shining. After hearing the references in pop-culture, and the show, I got it, I watched it.
But, there's something that confuses me.
I guess I got a chopped up version of the movie, but, at the end, with the pictures, and Jack's in the middle,

WHAT THE HELL DID IT MEAN?

Don't you remember what Grady said?

“You are the caretaker. You’ve always been the caretaker. I should know, sir. I’ve always been here.”

It means that Stanley Kubrick threw on a retarded ending to an otherwise decent horror movie.

I didn't get it for a while either, but I finally came to the conclusion that he's the reincarnation of the caretaker from the 1930s. That also explains why there are two guys named Grady - the 1930s butler that Jack meets, and the 1970s caretaker who murdered his family (please note their first names are different).

the hotel is alive and jack is part of the spirit of the hotel...remember when he's all like...i've been here before to his wife..and goes on about how it was beyond deja vu...like it was real..he says it in the movie

"Have you ever had any SINGLE MOMENT'S THOUGHT about my responsibilities? TO MY EMPLOYERS. Has it ever occured to you that I have agreed to look after the OVERLOOK until May the FIRST. Does it MATTER TO YOU AT ALL that the OWNERS have put their COMPLETE CONFIDENCE and TRUST in me that I have signed an agreement, a CONTRACT, in which I have accepted that RESPONSIBILITY?"

heheheh i love that part, LOVE this movie
