How new film 'Spencer' found a fresh angle on Princess Diana

  • Pablo Larrain's "Spencer" gives off "The Shining" vibes long before we see two women in matching outfits walking in step down a corridor.
  • The neat Kubrickian symmetry, the oppressive setting, the stifling presence of others, of ritual, of duty -- it's all there in Larrain's imaginary take on Princess Diana's Christmas from hell.
  • Then again, the moment involving two maids is so throwaway it could also be a nothing, a phantom.
  • It wouldn't be the only ghost lurking in the hallways of this film.
