Doomsday 2029 summed it up best IMO
Sometimes it's just better to remain ignorant on certain subjects, because I really don't want to know what these devils do behind closed doors
(these images can stay with you)
Very disturbing movie, very well made, but I personally didn't like it.
Had a bad feeling about it.
The real pornography in this film is in its lingering depiction of the shameless, naked wealth of millennial Manhattan, and of its obscene effect on
society and the human soul. National reviewers' myopic focus on sex, and the shallow psychologies of the film's central couple, the Harfords, at the
expense of every other element of the film-the trappings of stupendous wealth, its references to fin-de-siecle Europe and other imperial periods, its
Christmastime setting, even the sum Dr. Harford spends on a single night out-says more about the blindness of the elites to their own surroundings
than it does about Kubrick's inadequacies as a pornographer. For those with their eyes open, there are plenty of money shots.
...it shows us that these people are empty and amoral, using their social inferiors as thoughtlessly as if they were possessions, ultimately more
concerned with social transgressions like infidelity than with crimes like murder--just as the film's audience is more interested in the sex it was
supposed to be all about than the killing that is at its core.
The brief quote above is just part of a really asute analysis of Kubrick's movie.
Again, for me a disturbing film, not because of the sex if you can call it that. The people were, to me more zombie like, dead inside, no soul,
almost pocessed by ? (and I don't believe in "the devil").
A most strange and sad film.
A lot of mannequins and masks - to me symbolizes dehumanazation of the individual into that of a object.
I didn't even see the whole film, couldn't stand to submerge myself in that mire for a full 159 minutes.
Now, read Brice Taylor's book, "Thanks for the Memories", some of what she wrote about is supported by Kubick's "Eyes Wide Shut".
Mind Control, Rituals, Kundalini energy and it's connection with those not quite human.
Like vampires, only these don't drink blood.
