Reed K.’s review published on Letterboxd:
Probably the best horror film I've ever seen. The atmosphere of this film is amazing and that's something I really love about Stanley Kubrick's work. He's able to make you feel like you're in the same room with his characters and I love him for that. This is probably my favorite film by Kubrick and I understand if some fans of Stephen King don't like it. And even though I haven't read the book myself, I like to see the film as a different interpretation of the novel. Like the Nostalgia Critic said, the film is less about a sane man going crazy, but a crazy man being stripped away for what he is. And that's how I see the film as well. Anyway, I just gonna say I love this film and I'm happy with what Kubrick did with it.
P.S. Sorry if the review is kind of jumbled, I'm still trying to find my own writing style.
