During the dinner scene in A Clockwork Orange, the level of wine in Alex's glass varies from shot to shot, and it was claimed that this was intended to create a disorienting feeling. I think it's more likely that the insane perfectionist in Kubrick couldn't stand it when this flub was noticed and just had to provide a reasonable explanation.

That's just my thought on that movie, it might be true as far as The Shining goes.

I went to see Hannibal when I was 14. There was a group of twenty-somethings in there who laughed at different parts of the movie, and as I passed them in the lobby afterwards, they were still laughing while doing mocking renditions of the opera vocals from the score. Considering how much I hate that movie (and the book), their reaction is still funny to me.
