As most students of understanding Stanley Kubrick know, the American documentary film, Room 237 (2012), directed by Rodney Ascher, is filled with possible meanings of Stanley Kubrick's film The Shining (1980). But perhaps studying the mainstream interpretations would benefit us too.
Cryptokubrology: "A useful methodology for deconstructing cinema, history, and synchronicity." ~ says Alex Fulton (crypto-kubruology), January 31, 2017.
Cryptokubrology has been defined as "digging through the works of Stanley Kubrick on the premise that its body is a muted mass of coded cabalistic ministrations comparable (in scope) to the works of William Shakespeare, but incomparable (in complexity) to anything in recorded history. In fact, Cryptokubrology has led to an entirely different view of so-called 'history' itself." ~ says Robert Shawn Montgomery (shawnfella)
There is a scholar and popular cultural anthropologist, which I submit, has created a body of work that should be viewed by cryptokubrologists.
The name Lev may be of different origins.
It is typically a first name, or less commonly a surname (e.g. in Czech Republic) of Slavic origin, which translates as "lion". Cf. Germanic form Löwe or Löw.
It is also a common Israeli surname and uncommon female first name which translates as "heart" (לב, Loeb, Löb) in Hebrew.
The name also appears in the forms Liev, Lyev, Leo and Leon.
