Cannot decide if it was intentional or just for convenience sake, for example "I want windows in the living room and in the bathroom, so lets just make that happen", as opposed to "let's disorientate people",

Extra doors were just about making it seem like there were more rooms.

This is clearly just pretentious over-analysis by english majors.

this looks/sounds more like horrible set design then intentional attempts at disorientation

procyan... way to go on a grammar fail - of course disorientate is a word.... look it up in any good English dictionary.

As far as the film goes... it wasn't that interesting to me, but it did make me go fish out my Shining DVD to watch later.

GHudston: You should watch the 2nd part of this. It's obvious that Kubrick deliberately made the hotel confusing to unnerve the movie viewer and make them feel lost in the huge scale of the sets.

The exterior was based on the Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood and The interior was loosely based on the Awhanee Hotel in Yosemite Park, but the maze never existed in real life. Make no mistake all the non-aerial shots were filmed at Elstree Studios.

My cousin visited the Awhanee Hotel and was rather creeped out by it`s similarities.
