This is an old essay I wrote on this topic.
Truth has not a chance to prevail in this era of EYES WIDE SHUT.
The time predicted in the occult classic Eyes Wide Shut by the late director Stanley Kubrick.
Many people speculate that Mr. Kubrick’s untimely death after he made Eyes wide shut had to do with the content of the movie. His displaying the
occult sexual magick rituals of the elite rulers of the world may have caused these occultist to have done in Mr. Kubrick. This just may be the case,
but not for the reasons mentioned above: that being the elite having a serious problem with Kubrick revealing their sex secrets, but in fact Kubrick
revealing something much more subtle, pernicious and awful.
Indeed what Kubrick was telling us was much more subtle and underneath the theme of the movie, but interestingly the very title of the movie gives us
a huge hint of what he was revealing. To understand this point in context though one has to look at the history and themes of Kubrick’s past movies
and their relationship to the popular culture.
Starting with the 50’s classic “The Killing” a gritty crime drama that captured the environment of the criminal element in modern society as
Kubrick was so adept at in his realistic portrayals of life. This theme of crime continued in Kubrick’s repertoire in another classic “A Clockwork
Orange” done in 1971 16 years after “The Killing”. Both drama’s as noted emphasized crime in modern society, the killing a tale about robbery
and the criminal underground and Clockwork a more updated tale of not only crime but the kinds of crimes that are relative to the Charles Manson and
spree killers of our time.
The themes in these two movies seem to be portents by Kubrick of a coming era were such crime and types of crimes as in Clockwork will be rampant and
pervade American society. Certainly such a criminal element was around at the time that Kubrick made these movies, but the degree certainly was not as
extensive as it would become.
Similarly as in two other Kubrick classic’s “Dr Strangelove in 1964 and “2001Space Odyssey” in 1968 we have portents of the Star Wars, Star
Trek syndrome in the case of 2001, and the macho “nuke em” mentality of a certain type of American patriot in Dr Strangelove.
Indeed notwithstanding the genius in Mr. Kubrick, we may have here a pattern of not only unique talent and insight, but if we look closely some kind
of pre-knowledge or prescience of Kubrick that indicates he may have been tapped into some occult thought stream, if not being a secret adept himself
dedicated to revealing to us through the popular entertainment vehicle of movies the plans that the elite have for molding society to their
Now we return to the subject of “Eyes Wide Shut” which may have been Kubrick’s swan song or his final clarion call to us about the plans of
these supposed secret elites. Indeed we know that openly the movie frames itself around the tale of a young yuppie middle class Doctor stumbling
across the sexual magick rituals of the powerful elite, and their reaction to that, and the extent they will go to in covering up their tracks, which
includes murder. Also as some commentator’s have mentioned, there is a powerful theme of sex slavery brainwashing (ala’ MK Ultra) in the drama as
All of the above may certainly have some basis in reality. But the contention here is that if that be the case, such things are peripheral to the real
dangerous message that underlies the movie. And which may have caused Kubrick his life. Kubrick in this regard did a masterful job of diverting
attention from the major hidden message of the movie with all the common man vs. the mysterious elite motif, and the sex magick theme, but do we
really think they would kill him over that? That’s nothing new, secret or particularly ominous considering what we know of the elite today and what
they know we know of them.So if we dismiss the obvious but yet still see something very ominous in the movie then I contend that Mr. Kubrick very
brazenly put his message not only underneath the theme of the movie but had the audacity to put the essence of the message in the title itself, EYES
As a man who obviously in his movies predicted the coming sub-cultural thinking patterns of American society . . . this time he went too far with Eyes
In portending rampant crime, the space age, the American patriot, those were more or less innocent or expected cultural phenomena, but in Kubrick
predicting or revealing the era of Eyes Wide Shut, now that may have been going too far. For what Kubrick did was to tell us that in a few years the
mass media in conjunction with the elite would begin the final strangulation or usurpation of the minds and hearts of this civilization by bringing in
a period that can only be described as a new dark ages. Indeed, perhaps beginning in the horrors of 911, where practically the entire world would be
blinded by the obvious satanic fraud wrought on the populace with the ridiculous spectacle of buildings disintegrating before our eyes and being given
no reasonable explanation why this happened but yet everyone through ignorance, media hype and brainwashing are told what to believe and what
happened, and lo and behold, most have been hoodwinked.
EYES WIDE SHUT
The era of EYES WIDE SHUT is simply put . . . a time when adult human beings will be told and shown blatant lies and absurdities that in ordinary
times a child could see through.
The Iraq war, 911, Katrina, and many other instances that try the credulity of intelligent people.
