Film analysis is as complex as any other analysis in social facts that are depicted through the art of creation. In film making, most of the storytelling is done through the camera shots, lighting, and general mise-en-scene (Barsam and Monahan 212). However, there are other elements such as narrative and cinematography that cannot be separated from the principles of film form and type of movie among others. In this essay, the 1980 British-American psychological horror&, The Shining will be analyzed. The Shining is directed by Stanley Kubrick and is co-written with Diane Johnson. Although the film has significant editing and change of themes, it is based on Stephen King’s novel entitled “The Shining”.The plot is among the elements of narrative in film and constitutes the sequence of events as they take place to construct a storyline. In The Shining, the plot is linear from the start to the end (Bordwell & Kristin 26). As the movie begins, Jack Torrance is seen arriving at the overlook hotel in which he is interviewed for the position of winter caretaker. His main drive is being alone and affording time to complete his writing projects. During winter, the location of the hotel is encased in snow. This makes the hotel operate for only five months in a year and for the rest seven months, it is closed. The manager of the hotel, named Ullman Stuart, tells Jack that the person who held the position of caretaker committed suicide after killing his entire family. This functions as the first allusion to the events that unfold later in the film. Danny, the son of Jack experienced a terrible dream foreshadowing an imminent danger in the hotel. His mother has already noted and reported to the doctor that Danny has an imaginary friend called Tony. She also reports that Jack has sworn not to drink following a binge in which he hurt Danny in the arm.When the family arrives at the hotel, it is oriented and it is during the orientation tour.
