Most disturbing movie I've ever seen... It's almost as if I personally witnessed the Illuminati's sex ritual.
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)
Kubrick really does do some interesting work however.
Some people tend to think Space Odyssey 2001 foreshadowed elements of 9/11.
I don't know man... those are some weird coincidences. (Not to mention he got the year right on his movie title.)

When you see that movie, the way it's filmed you don't get "excited" so to speak, at least I didn't. In scenes you would think would "excite" a person I was incredibly disturbed and it was hard to watch. I don't know why that is, but that move is seriously [snip]up. I would also assume Illuminati rituals look nothing like in the movie.

I kind of found myself getting "excited" a couple of times when Nicole Kidman was shaking her stuff around when just wearing panties.

illuminati being the hierarchy of the secret societies...so no need to include cfr, bildebergs and freemasons etc
The objective being to make people think that Freemasons (there's a lodge in every town) are not having Satan worshipping sex parties right under the general publics nose, infesting innocent people with their sins. They are.

The reason I think EYES WIDE SHUT is a dream from first frame to last is that the studio sets for everything including NYC street scenes look almost real but definitely fake, just as in a dream.
Behaviors of characters in the film seem almost realistic but obviously fake or concocted. The last scene, for example, when they are in the toy shop (looks to be a dreamlike representation of FAO Schwarz) and they say the F word loud enough for others in the shop to hear. A social climbing doctor with wife would never do that except in a dream. That's only one example, but I think every scene contains hints that we are watching someone's dream, not Kubrick trying to represent real life situations.
I remember film critics saying things like "why didn't he just block off some streets in New York and shoot on location there for realism because Woody Allen does it all the time?" Well, those critics were, in my opinion, missing the whole point. The NYC street scenes were sets in the studio in England because Kubrick wanted them to look almost like real scenes but not completely realistic --- just like dreaming of NYC street scenes.
If by "just been posted" you mean 3 months ago, that is...

Yeah, it’s depressing but I don’t think it was wrong for the movie to not focus on the murder because otherwise Kubrick’s point wouldn’t be made. It’s supposed to show people for what they are, it’s supposed to be honest about how soulless and shallow we’ve become. The lack of redeeming qualities is what makes the film so realistic and dreamlike at the same time, because people don’t want to believe that this is what reality is, people don’t want to “wake up”, they want their eyes to remain shut.
