Heather’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Shining is one of my all time favorite movies. But I never thought it really made that much sense. All the pieces didn’t fit together perfectly. And that’s ok because it’s still the fucking shining. And it’s great.
With Doctor Sleep, I feel like a lot of pieces were filled in. We’re given more of a sense of what the fuck the shining is other than it lets Danny see dead people. A bit of explanation is given to what happened and how it effected Danny and how he learned to cope with it.
I really enjoyed this. I even liked Abra which I was surprised by. Also Rebecca Ferguson. Hello. Hi. You’re great.
