How Stanley Kubrick used Escher-styled spacial awareness & set design anomolies to disorientate viewers of his horror classic The Shining.
see also Jeff Kipnis' Film lecture at Knowlton. Discussion of The Shining, begins at 28:45, becomes more specific to the above post around 32:28.
awesome tip on the Kipnis Lecture. very interesting. I have heard him speak only briefly on this topic and it is interesting to see the longer dedicated version.
The Kubrick -Escher connection was written about earlier, and in more detail, in Juhani Pallasmaa's 21-page essay MONSTER IN THE MAZE in his THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE IMAGE (2001).
