It portrayed nearly exactly the last NWO meeting I went to, amazing!


Hahahahaah, that's exactly what you coo-coo conspiratists would like to hear.

The reality though, this movie is a "wow".

I mean by chance I saw the movie more like pulp-fiction, I saw the last half a bit ago and thought "what a crazy pile of trash" and now I've seen the beginning and it's actually an awesome movie.

Obviously (unless you're a thickheaded conspiratist who doesn't realize the difference between fantasy and reality) this movie is simply an "art film".

It generates a situation (the party) and has a moral (but doesn't tell you what it is), and leaves the "journey" up for you to interpret, because of course how you interpret Dr. Bill's journey determines what morals you'll draw from it.

I personally saw the entire film after when his wife tells him that she cheated on him in her mind (just as bad if not worse than actually physically doing it. Because you can't just flip out over "thoughts" but you really want to) until he returns to the house after that big orgy, as not to be taken literal.

In the beginning of the movie they are a happily married couple that look perfectly decent, they go to a party and it starts off decent, but as the party drags on some of the "curtains" are pulled back to reveal decadence, even if only a little.

Then they (Tom and Nicole) are doing pot in the bed-room and that's a shocker because you don't expect they'd be those type of people, and she tells him her little betrayal.

Well then he goes to make a house call to a dead guy to console the dead guy's daughter, and the daughter wigs out on him even though she's supposed to get married. And he meets a hooker and so on, and he just plunges into "the abyss" of decadence until it culminates into a giant spooky "satanist" like orgy that he's only rescued from by another's nobel sacrifice.

After-which, his journey symbolizes a return to reality, a greater understanding of the decadent world, he has now been there, and conquered it and so in the end he no longer has "blind faith" in his wife, he knows decadence is all around them, but he can now believe that she will be faithful to him because he has been through the same kind of temptation she went through with the Navy man, but did not act upon it.

Something along those lines, I'd like to watch it again.

Previous stuff I had read here talked about NWO and Illuminati symbology in the movie, what a load of crock.

The movie is obviously a "social criticism" from Kubrick's view-point, understanding him would tell you what the movie meant to him, but the movie's vague subjectiveness allows each person's own personality shape the final meaning.

So in that sense of course the conspiratists are going to see "conspiracy" in the movie, but if you look at it from more of a real stand-point (that is using only stuff you know from experience and other's experiences that are varified, and discount anything that is merely "possible") the film really stands out as a view of how decadence leads to ruin.

Another's Analysis

Actually when I started reading this I realized it was more along the lines of what I was thinking as well, but that I hadn't really posted well on it, this person writes well about how they viewed it.

I think it is also important in understanding what is going on in the orgy (conspiratists would say Illuminati meeting) to understand what the password means.

It is plainly described that Fidelio is an opera, it is, by Beethoven.

Just read the synopsis, I'm sure you'll begin to see the connections.

Better Synopsis

What can I say, the movie is jam packed with symbolism, gotta hammer at it all to prevent the "conspiratists" from making you believe it is a representation of the Illuminati or some garbage.

The film is actually based on Arthur Schnitzler's Traumnovelle: a German synopsis.
