He's just a walking carpet, anyway. Whatever source you read that from is full of it. Kubrick did put a lot of allegorical and political stuff in his films and a lot of people mistake that for evidence of conspiracy theories. More like a Poison Ivy League School I agree. However, if you go through the whole thread some very interesting rebuttals and counter-theories presented. "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball" was sung to the tune of "Colonel Bogey's March" during World War II. Trump looks up at the sky when he says "I am the chosen one" (at 1:37) "And how can this be? For he IS the Kwisatz Haderach!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8-eiBqri0U They'd have to change the name to Orangeland...and that would be absurd. I love Karen Black in anything, especially when she's not wearing anything. [quote]This is something I was left with questions about. Are they just a bunch of rich people who like to have sex and play dress up or are they actually an occult religious group who engage in occult practices? We are never given an answer. [/quote] This ambiguity is at the heart of the film's meaning, which is why I find it absurd that people believe there is "'missing' footage" showing actual human sacrifice and pedophile sex going on at the mansion. Actually, both are [b]suggested[/b] when the woman ends up dead and the scene with Mr. Millich's daughter and the two Japanese men in the costume shop. However, this film deals in ambiguities and subtleties. It is not the over the top thriller people wanted it to be. The later scenes in Ziegler's billiards room and the final one in the toy store make no sense if the exact nature of the cult and how far the actually go is spelled out for the viewer. Bill and Alice wouldn't be casually shopping for toys and leaving their daughter to run around unattended. Having said that, there IS a metaphorical meaning behind the Harford's daughter that runs throughout the film right up to the final toy shop scene. Yes, Kubrick is trying to tell us something, but the melodramatic "kidnapping" theory is again a lurid and sensationalist reading. But that's a subject for another thread. This one, as a matter of fact: https://moviechat.org/tt0120663/Eyes-Wide-Shut/58c7750993cef4080d7b3fb4/Bills-daughter-is-the-key-to-this-movie View all replies >
