Here is a video I came across from Rob Ager that explains how Stanley Kubrick used spacial awareness & set design anomolies to disorientate viewers of his horror classic The Shining. It's a long video (approx 12mins) but worth every minute for Kubrick fans.
Very interesting video. Though, what does it prove, that Kubrick was subliminally trying to drive the audience insane with the set design, or that he built the sets to be cost-effective and easier to shoot in the soundstage? I don't know. Kubrick was a very weird man.
My favorite behind-the-scenes moments from The Shining come from the Vivian Kubrick documentary, that show Stanley K and Shelley Duvall getting frustrated with each other and arguing, because he made her do like 100 takes for every scene. Love his movies, but everything he did makes him come across as some sort of pain in the butt. I guess it paid off though, in almost every case. Except maybe Eyes Wide Shut.
