Making Of The Shining

Excellent four part on YouTube of the making of The Shining shot by Kubrick's daughter (via Kottke). The parts where the actors are discussing Kubrick are absolutely right on the mark.

My favorite part from Jack Nicholson:
Anything you do as many times as a successful actor you can't have one set of theories. You know, you can go many years saying "I'm going to get this thing real, you know, because they really haven't seen it real". You know, they just keep seeing one fashion of unreal after the other that passes as real. And, you go mad with realism. And then you come up against somebody like Stanely who says "yah it's real, but it's not interesting".
The improvisation was pretty fascinating as well.

Part one.
Part two.
Part three.
Part four.
