The Stanley Kubrick Conspiracy - Part 6: Eyes Wide Shut

Kubrick’s final film, “Eyes Wide Shut”, has been meticulously analysed by many alternative knowledge researchers. It is considered that the film is the closest a Hollywood production has ever come to metaphorically “spilling the beans” about aspects of the global agenda. The film alludes to elite collusion, secret societies, ritualistic and occult practices, and mind control programming.
Apparently, the film’s origins date back to the late 1960s. "The plot of EWS is based on Arthur Schnitzler’s 1926 novella entitled Traumnovelle (Dream Story), and Stanley Kubrick had wanted to make this story into a film way back in 1968, when he first read the novella, while making his magnum opus 2001: A Space Odyssey. The novella wrestles with issues that are germane to today’s world, such as the issue of being spiritually asleep versus being spiritually awake."

The central characters are Bill and Alice (Through the Looking Glass…) Hartford, a married couple who mix with elements of New York’s social elite. The characters are portrayed by agenda notables and then-married couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Perhaps coincidentally, the couple immediately divorced after their participation in the film.

The story follows Bill, who learns that his wife has considered cheating on him. This leads him on a journey – encountering a large gathering of masked individuals who are partaking in a secret society ritual, involving all manner of naked sexual debauchery. Bill learns of this gathering from his old friend “Nick Nightingale”, who performs music (whilst blindfolded) at these events. It appears that Bill has witnessed things he shouldn’t have. This leads him into a dark world of elite controlled intimidation, perversion and murder – a world that is ordinarily hidden from the larger public.

The exterior locale of the secret society gathering (Somerton, Long Island – in the film) was actually shot at Mentmore Towers in the UK. Dating from the 19th century, Mentmore was a country house built for members of the elite Rothschilds family. It has been suggested, by some researchers, that (by selecting this location) Kubrick was trying to show his audience an example of the “real world” equivalents of the elite figures witnessed in the film.

Rare documentation shows that masked “events” were held by the Rothschild family at this location. Mainstream historians claim that these types of events allegedly date back to the Italian Renaissance, where elite figures would don elaborate masks so as to retain their anonymity at social events, whilst simultaneously indulging their inhibitions without fear of reprisal or social denunciation. However, as I understand it, such practices appear to predate the Italian Renaissance by a substantial amount of time.

In the infamous “murder by phallic art” scene of “A Clockwork Orange”, the character of Alex hides his identity with a disguise that is worryingly reminiscent of the masonic “plague doctor” mask. Similar masks are also noticeable in the ritual scenes of “Eyes Wide Shut”.
One example of a masked event at Mentmore Towers was held in 1972 by Baroness Marie-Hélène de Rothschild and Baron Alexis de Redé. Photographs from the event show some guests wearing Venetian masks (actually quite similar to some witnessed in the film), whilst images of the invitations reveal that the text was printed in reversed writing – a theme common in occult and ritualistic practices.

There is an interesting similarity with this practice in “Eyes Wide Shut”. When Bill enters the gathering, “the song heard in the background is called 'Backwards Priests' and features a Romanian Orthodox Divine Liturgy played backwards. The reversal or inversion of sacred objects is typical of black magic and satanic rituals.”

It is also claimed that certain street names and characters names in the film take on additional esoteric meanings when spelt backwards. In the film, Bill witnesses a “High Priest” (dressed in red) performing a ceremony at the centre of a circle formed by several young women. The High Priest sits on a throne which features an “Egyptian Uraeus Serpent with the two heads on the back of the chair. This relates to the Sun, and the two heads -- which face and East and West, relate to the rising and setting of the Sun.” In the story, the identity of the High Priest is unknown. The High Priest is played by actor Leon Vitali (born Alfred Leon), a long time Kubrick collaborator. Vitali played Lord Bullingdon in Kubrick’s 1975 film “Barry Lyndon” and served as casting director and personal assistant to Kubrick on “Full Metal Jacket” (1987) and “Eyes Wide Shut”.

Research into trauma-based mind control has revealed a possible type of programming that utilises women for sexual slavery, abuse and sacrifice (amongst other things). The practice is extensively alluded to in popular culture – film, television, music, fashion, the pornographic industry, and so on. Those who have studied “Eyes Wide Shut” in this context have suggested (given the various analogous references throughout) that the women seen at the ritual are probably based on the model of “Beta Sex Kitten” slaves. Adam Gorightly has written an interesting article entitled “An Interpretation of Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut” that explores this theme.

Upon being exposed, Bill is placed in the centre of another ritualistic circle awaiting judgement from those gathered. Kubrick loves this imagery. Witness the circular table in “Dr Strangelove”, around which are gathered the global elite deciding the fate of the world. In “Eyes Wide Shut”, the “magic circle” is affected when the character of Amanda appears on an upper balcony, telling the High Priest that she wants to “redeem” Bill. The Priest replies, “Are you sure you understand what you’re taking upon yourself in doing this?” The next day, Bill reads in the newspaper that Amanda was found dead in a hotel room due to an overdose. Ritualistic deaths (particularly in the entertainment Industry) are often “disguised” as simply “untimely” or “accidental” deaths.

Closer inspection of the on-screen newspaper (which reports her Amanda’s death) reveals (shown only fleetingly, in typical Kubrick fashion) the story of a woman who was “emotionally troubled” as a teenager and underwent “treatments”, that she had “important friends in the fashion and entertainment worlds”, and that she had an “affair” with a powerful fashion designer who got “wowed by her private, seductive solo performances”. These are also behavioural traits of those allegedly subjected to Beta Sex Kitten programming. The news article also names the “powerful fashion designer” as “Leon Vitali” – the same “Leon Vitali” who is listed on the credits of the film as playing the “High Priest”. What is Kubrick trying to tell us?

The film makes further allusions to the mind control phenomenon. The costume rental store where Bill rents his mask is named “Rainbow” (“The Wizard of Oz” - See Chapter Nine). There is another store located directly beneath “Rainbow” named “Under the Rainbow” ("As Above, So Below"). Kent Daniel Bentkowski, in his detailed article “Eyes Wide Shut: Occult Symbolism”, has also noted that “the building directly adjacent to the Rainbow Costume shop is a Freemason Lodge, which can only be seen with the DVD player's ZOOM feature.”

Going “over the rainbow” is a term that recurs in mind control literature, referring to those whose conditioning causes them to dissociate from reality. Bill’s wife, Alice, hints that she may have lost recall of some of her memories and refers to certain memories and thoughts as “dreams”. The last scene of the movie takes place at a toy store, where a number of the toys appear to symbolically represent aspects of mind control and ritual practices – one such item is called the “Magic Circle”.

The pool room scene remains a key revelatory moment in the film. Bill confronts one of the members of the group - an associate of his named Ziegler. Although Ziegler “appears” to be openly candid with Bill, it is clear that he is dissembling and confounding the truth. He chillingly hints at the scale of the situation: “I don’t think you realize what kind of trouble you were in last night. Who do you think those people were? Those were not just ordinary people there. If I told you their names – I’m not gonna tell you their names – but if I did, I don’t think you’d sleep so well.”

Kubrick completed his final cut of “Eyes Wide Shut” in March 1999. Within the first several days of the month, the film was viewed by the key actors involved, some of Kubrick’s friends and family, and certain Warner Brother executives. Kubrick died days later, on the 7th March. It is widely claimed that the “Kubrick cut” of March 1999 was almost an hour longer in length than the publically released film. The cut material also allegedly included dream-like sequences of a mind-bending, reality-distorting nature. Why was this material removed from the film?
The myriad of continuity errors, particularly the pool room scene, indicate heavy editing that is inconsistent with Kubrick’s style and standard. Kubrick loved to edit his films with meticulous precision. “Editing is the only aspect of the cinematic art that is unique. It shares no connection with any other art form: writing, acting, photography, things that are major aspects of the cinema, is still not unique to it, but editing is.” Kubrick’s “final” edit was witnessed (and approved by Warner Bros.) and seemingly differs dramatically from the released film. Why?

Ironically, Kubrick’s contract with Warner Bros. stated that “Eyes Wide Shut” was to be released on July 16th 1999, exactly thirty years to the day of the Apollo 11 “landing”. Is it possible that the claims of his involvement with the Apollo hoax (along with the revelations of his last film) came back to haunt him in the final days of his life?

The reason “Eyes Wide Shut” became Kubrick’s final film remains a constant source of speculation. Kubrick allegedly died of an unexpected heart attack at the age of 70. Most biographies of Kubrick unsurprisingly maintain that he “died in his sleep of natural causes”. A number of friends and family described the sudden death as shocking, given that he was apparently in good health. Although unexpected and sudden deaths do not necessarily constitute suspicious circumstances, a number of people now believe that Kubrick was assassinated in light of the film’s revelations about the ritualistic practices and secretive collusion of the elite.

It is worth remembering that Mozart, a noted freemason, died soon after revealing aspects of the masonic “mystery school” teachings in his opera “The Magic Flute”. "Author Stephen Knight, whose book, Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution (1975) revealed Victorian London's Whitechapel Murders as the work of ritual masonic killers, also died mysteriously. And William Morgan, author of Freemasonry Exposed (1836) was kidnapped and allegedly murdered by masons."

However, “Eyes Wide Shut” was not the first attempt made by Kubrick to examine the nature of secret societies and cover-ups. At some point during the 1980s, he began investigating the possibility of mounting a cinematic adaption of “Foucault's Pendulum” – from the book by Umberto Eco. The plot involved “three book editors decide as a joke to invent a worldwide conspiracy theory. The game turns deadly when they start to disappear one by one. Foucault's Pendulum is Italian semiotics professor Umberto Eco's satirical take on conspiracy theories, the illuminati and secularisation of religion in the modern age.” Kubrick was allegedly one of a dozen filmmakers who attempted to option the novel. Kubrick never got much past the preliminary production stages though. (The Kubrick FAQ)

The film “Rosemary’s Baby” was another Hollywood movie that explored ritualized practices. After the movie was distributed, Sharon Tate (the wife of its director Roman Polanski - along with several other people) was savagely murdered at Polanski’s home. The murders were eventually attributed to The Manson Family and displayed many hallmarks of “occult” and “ritualistic” practices. This whole affair unfolded amongst the hills of Laurel Canyon, amidst multiple agenda players. A number of claims of sexually inappropriate behaviour have also been heaped upon Polanski.

“Rosemary’s Baby” is also noted as an almost ritualized recreation of Aleister Crowley’s Babalon/Amalantrah Working. A similar observation has been made about “2001: A Space Odyssey”. In the film, there are a succession of lunar/solar/planetary alignments (prompted by the appearance of the Saturnian/”Black Cube” Monolith) that create “eclipses”. These prompt the eventual appearance of the “Starchild” entity. Some researchers discuss the “Moonchild” in relation to the “Sunchild”/Sun-King/Horus/etc. The Sun is, of course, a star. So, the natural progression of the Moonchild/Sunchild is the “Starchild”. Is the film an analogy for the evocation ritual? In this regard, there may be a few “degrees of separation” that connect back to Kubrick’s final film. Crowley’s ritual connects to L. Ron Hubbard, who founded Scientology, which was avidly supported by Tom Cruise (who is their “poster boy”) and Nicole Kidman, who both starred in “Eyes Wide Shut”…

Kubrick’s expose of the sexual nature of elite ritualistic and occult practices also cannot be overlooked. The overt sexualisation of children is very much a part of these practices. Kubrick vaguely alluded to this in “Eyes Wide Shut” and featured it as a central plot device in his earlier work “Lolita”. Interestingly, “Lolita” departs from the notorious book, on which it was based, on one significant plot point – the role of Peter Sellers’ character, who hints at the existence of a paedophile network.

Associated allegations were once levelled at Kubrick’s “2001:  A Space Odyssey” collaborator Arthur C. Clarke. These allegations, combined with Clarke’s eventually disclosed homosexual orientation, have prompted a wealth of discussion on the internet. However, the allegations made against Clarke remain impossible to evidentially quantify. Some researchers have suggested that these claims were made in order to discredit Clarke's character. Others have speculated about how extensive his "agenda" connection were. Should we read something into the timing of these claims - as Kubrick was heavily involved in the production of "Eyes Wide Shut", and roughly a year before his death?

Some vague details of the allegations appear on Clarke’s Wikipedia page: “On 26 May 2000 he was made a Knight Bachelor "for services to literature" at a ceremony in Colombo. The award of a knighthood had been announced in the 1998 New Year Honours, but investiture with the award had been delayed, at Clarke's request, because of an accusation, by the British tabloid The Sunday Mirror, of paedophilia. The charge was subsequently found to be baseless by the Sri Lankan police. According to The Daily Telegraph (London), the Mirror subsequently published an apology, and Clarke chose not to sue for defamation. Clarke was then duly knighted.”

Here are more details of the accusations made by The Sunday Mirror:
Here are the details following Clarke being cleared of sex charges:
Sci-fi novelist cleared of sex charges -
“Child sex file could close on sci-fi writer” -

There are also opaque thematic references to ritualistic sexualisation of children in the film that Kubrick planned to make after “Eyes Wide Shut” – “A.I. Artificial Intelligence”. The film centres on the concept of artificially-created children being manufactured as substitutes for childless couples or grieving parents trying to come to terms with the loss of a human child. However, “Eyes Wide Shut” became Kubrick’s last film and “A.I.” was eventually completed by Steven Spielberg. It is said that Kubrick’s plot was radically darker in tone than the final film – more deeply examining why people would want to create life-like children that never grew up.More alarmingly, Saturn Worship (along with other aspects of elite belief systems) is also allegedly connected with the sexual abuse of children – the act of which is viewed by many twisted and depraved agenda participants as a ritualistic “sacrifice of innocence”. Troy D. McLachlan (author of the website asks, “Is the greater body of Stanley Kubrick’s films an exposé of a hidden elite obsessed with dark Saturnian sexual rites, paedophilia and the planned ritualistic transmutation of mankind?”

Many thanks Jasun.
Glad you found this useful and I hope you've had the chance to read some of my more recent Kubrick related material - particularly regarding Alexei Leonov's remarks about him in an a 2010 RT News interview (see post: 23/11/14)

How could the Rothschilds possibly have killed Kubrick, without the autopsy showing the cause of death?
