And this is where we are at. At the lowest level. To have to explain ourselves. For what? For what we do we have to grovel. The only way to defend ourselves is to attack. If we don’t do that we will lose every battle we’re engaged in. We will never dominate our environment as we should unless we attack.

Chairs Missing, Revisited
∆ Much focus has been placed on the missing chair in The Shining in the various critiques of documentary Room 237. While in the doc, professor Geoffrey Cocks merely offers up the possibility that the disappearing furniture could be Kubrick’s dry parody of b-movie haunted house conventions, his observation is invariably touted as evidence that Kubrick researchers place ‘deep...

Rodney Dangerfield in Kubrick's The Killing
For the past two KDK12 installments, The Table and More Table-Gates, we’ve been exploring instances of “stargates” in other Kubrick films and how they are often preceded by scenes involving tables, horizontal rectangles (or monoliths) and stories of a “woman in trouble.” Here’s a few more examples, from pre-2001 works Paths Of Glory and Lolita and the oddly...
In our previous installment, The Table, we observed a pattern in Kubrick films in which the presence of a horizontal monolith or table, combined with the idea of a woman in danger, results in the following scene being a trip through a colorful hallway. In our rush to publish, we forgot to included a few more occurrences of these ‘table-gates’, here now presented: ∆ In the above...

You think the point of the story is that his death was inevitable because a paranoid poker player would ultimately get involved in a fatal...
