Soundtrack: The Shining – Stanley Kubrick

Certain movies in cinematic history stand as cultural sentinels, containing scenes which telegraph love, hope, humour, sadness… or unbridled horror and incomprehensible primordial fear as Stanley Kubrick’s film, The Shining, did upon release in the spring of 1980. The fact this dance macabre is orchestrated to one of the creepiest and haunting – yet temporally ambiguous – soundtracks in modern film history only bolsters its place in the pantheon of greatest movies of all time.
