The Shining–The Bathroom Scene

If there is a better scene in all of cinema, it probably comes from The Shining (1980) as well—the first bar scene? But pound for pound the back and forth between Jack and Grady in the unbelievably beautiful set of the red and white bathroom may be my all-time favorite. I mean the whole “He’s a very willful boy!” part still gives me goosebumps, I think I’ve quoted that regularly for somewhere near thirty years now. It’s a masterpiece of the highest order, and let’s face it when the dust settles on the Kubrick’s legacy The Shining will be remembered as his greatest work 50 years from now, and if it isn’t it’s a commie conspiracy to sap our critical essence!
