How did they ever make a movie of… Lolita? (x)

The layout of the hotel makes no sense whatsoever. Stuart Ullman’s office has a nice big window in the middle of the building, the Colorado Room has multiple floor to ceiling windows with a mystery hallway behind them. There’s hallways that lead into walls, windows that can only be seen from inside, hotel rooms that seem to overlap the same space, the hotel interiors have nice right angles while the outside doesn’t. The freezer flips sides of the hallway between shots. The spaces between the doorways in Room 237’s hallway are far too small to actually contain any rooms of that size. This was done deliberately for dramatic/horror effect.

"Listen, you fuckers, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take it anymore. A man who stood up against the scum, the cunts, the dogs, the filth, the shit. Here is a man who stood up."

J’ai tué ma mère aka I Killed My Mother (2009) - (dir. Xavier Dolan)

"I had written I Killed My Mother when I dropped out of college. All my older friends were shooting - they’re all actors or directors - and my younger friends were studying. I was really alone and wanted to get back to hard feelings I was harboring against my mom. So I wrote that and I thought, I’m the only guy who can act in this film because it’s my life. And if another director or producer takes care of this, they’re going to cast some hottie. [Laughs] I decided that I would direct it, and then I discovered that I loved directing."  Xavier Dolan about making his first film
