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.

He also didn't mention that you can't see the hedge maze in the aerial footage of the hotel.

What is this, a 9/11 debunking? It's a MOVIE.

2001 was way more disorienting.

Well, I love to be the Grammar-Nazi, and I can assure you that "disorientate" is a word.

I hate to be the Grammar-Nazi, however, "disorientate" is not a real word. The use of "disorientate" makes one seem uneducated and hickish. The proper usage would be "disorient." No wonder the rest of the world looks at us Americans with contempt! They think that we are ALL a bunch of idiot rednecks because of stuff like this!

That is nuts that he put so much effort making things appear off. Either that or what Omphaloskept said, just the set designer making things look 'pretty' and Kubrick got kudos for it

Ya um... I'm all for directors trying all kinds of mind tricks, but... I dunno this just looks like a crappy job of continuity to me...

I mistakenly clicked this thinking it was going to be interesting rather than an extremely dull Liverpool accent droning on about incorrect architecture. If it was a real hotel/building used then yeah, but it was a set, so the argument holds no water. I'd have thought they'd have used a proper hotel/building, it certainly looks like one. I wonder why they didn't.

@survivalist: from IMDB: "The Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood in Oregon was used for the front exterior, but all the interiors as well as the back of the hotel were specially built at Elstree Studios in London, England."

This isn't necessarily an authoritative source, but is consistent with what I've seen elsewhere.

Many of these points may be valid -- Kubrik (and I'm a big fan) played to his tortured genius reputation plenty -- but I bet most of the inconsistencies noted here are just set-design tricks to create the illusion of a bigger space than they were filming in.

I think the narrator needs to take a page from the MST3K handbook and realize, "Repeat to yourself, 'It's just a show', I should really just relax."

At least conspiracy theorists have some ambition in their elaborate fantasies.
