As some of you are aware, Stanley Kubrick personally re-edited The Shining after the initial US release, shortening it some 20 minutes. The original version, clocked at 144 min is only available in the US (and is available here on worldscinema) but everywhere else, there is this 119 min version, which according to some sources, was Kubrick’s preferred version.
Personally I prefer the longer version, but it’s uncanny how organic this cut is, since you don’t feel like you’re watching a shortened version at all.
This rip is made from the Special Edition 16:9 DVD, with the commentary track on second track – the commentary is shortened too!
