It was all in all a great doc.
Yeah, as far-fetched as the theories may be, it just goes to prove that great cinema gets people thinking and looking for details that may or may not be there... It's all about love for the art and those people love it enough to analyze this movie in some very interesting ways.

Also... some of the things they point out in Room 237 kind of blow my mind... Next time I watch it I will have my eyes open as widely as possible.
