Do the Kabbalist readings or wild free associations that Room 237 celebrates improve The Shining? Let's say that they create a parallel text: Lost in the Overlook, in search of the overlooked.The New RepublicJune 12, 2013
A curious and entertaining documentary.Toronto StarMay 10, 2013
The human brain is a marvellously suggestible organ.Globe and MailMay 10, 2013
[A] strange, frustrating, occasionally fascinating doc ...Minneapolis Star TribuneMay 02, 2013
"Room 237" evolves from an ode to movie love at its most delirious to a wry examination of the crackpot mind at work.NewsdayApril 18, 2013
There's enough real evidence supporting the theory that Kubrick was a genius, and that's pretty entertaining all by itself.Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
Room 237 isn't about The Shining or the Holocaust or the slaughter of Native Americans or the moon landing. It's about people finding order in chaos.eFilmCritic.comJuly 15, 2015
"The Shining" is the perfect launching pad for a movie about obsessive film theorists because Kubrick attracts theories like lint and this film is perhaps his most stubbornly mystifying work.Times (UK)June 24, 2015
Don't watch this film and expect an authoritative critical analysis of the film; watch it and explore the distorting, drug-like pull that some art can exert on its audience.Film School RejectsJune 02, 2014
Room 237 is about bringing a text to life through an active, prolonged, playful, or even tortured relationship to it. It's a document of immersive obsession.EricDSnider.comJuly 12, 2013
Inelegant in the way it assembles all this stuff ... but anyone who's ever obsessed over the subtext of a beloved movie will find it amusing.MLive.comMay 31, 2013
An intellectual exercise, and an entertaining one, especially for those who don't want to label The Shining as just a ghost story.
