Abstract:

Discovers a Holocaust subtext in Kubrick's films, culminating in his 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel "The Shining". Maintains that this is reflected in his depiction of harsh struggles with and over power and violence. Several of his films deal with war and state power. "The Shining" is seen as an artistic and philosophical response to the horrors of World War II. Among the influences on the filmmaker are Hilberg's "The Destruction of the European Jews", Kubrick's Jewish past, and his early years that were affected by fascism and war. Kubrick's marriage into an artistic German family also contributed to his preoccupation with the history of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, which were indirectly reflected in his oeuvre.
