Eyes Wide Open
Watched the Lucy, Daughter of Satan episode last night. I’ll do a write-up on it soonish (done), but for now, to use Hollywood jargon, I’ll say it was like Bohemian Grove meets Eyes Wide Shut. Speaking of the latter, came across this interesting video [while I don’t agree with its interpretations, I do find the chosen scenes notable]:
I’ve always felt there was a lot more to Stanley Kubrick than meets the eye. An amazing director? Indisputably. Creator of one of the top films ever? Dr. Strangelove should be in anyone serious film buff’s Top Three list.
Was he employed by NASA to stage/film the Apollo Moon Landing hoax? Who knows! Was he a member of some secret society. Without a doubt! Just watch some of his films and you can’t help but spot a whole mess of occult symbolism.
Clockwork Orange (1971) was a futuristic portent into the glorification of violence, flirted with the idea of mind control and portrayed a world where violent criminals are recruited as policemen (ah, that would be the world of today). Dr. Strangelove (1964) was sheer genius, but ultimately, served as an extremely useful propaganda tool; for years to follow, it personally guaranteed that any rational person who might question putting Fluoride in the water supply would be automatically dismissed as a raving lunatic.
While the above clip raises many interesting ideas about Eyes Wide Shut (1999), it skirts what I feel is one of the most controversial aspects of the film, a point from which my research into the occult, suggests that all sorts of ritual sex magick is taking place. My work suggests that the main misleading presentation of the orgy sequences, is the over-emphasis of the use of females. In all actuality, they most likely bring in gay male prostitutes, teenage boys and children of both sexes.
Was Stanley attempting to clear his conscience with the final cut of Eyes Wide Shut? Did “they” kill him, and if so, is that why?

*Post-publicatione note: Found two excellent supporting articles. One [2006/03/eyes-wide-shut-occult-symbolism], depicting even more occult symbolism. Another [2007/02/kentroversy-grants-interview-to_07], an interview which argues Kubrick was killed because of the final cut (never to be seen, I guess) he released to the studio.
