Figure 1 – Publicity for the film Eyes Wide Shut focused exclusively upon the factthat a married couple had been signed as the films’ principal leads,while ignoring the REAL STORY,which was the fact that this film exposed the global cabal known as the Illuminati.In 1999, an extremely peculiar film was released by legendary film director Stanley Kubrick,which would end up the sixteenth and final film he would direct in his career.In fact, Eyes Wide Shut was Kubrick’s first film in twelve years, since 1987’s Full Metal Jacket,and only his fifth film since 1968, when the magnificent 2001: A Space Odyssey was released.Kubrick died under mysterious circumstances only four days after delivering the final print to Warner Brothers.The film, Eyes Wide Shut, was filled with the symbolism that astute researchers have come to recognizeas the calling card of the Illuminati, the synarchist group of global rulers, who believe in rule by birthright,and who rule this planet by the ‘iron fist in a velvet glove’ divide and conquer methodology.Used in the preceding context,synarchy refers to joint rule by those who are under the influence and direction of a fascist government,and the various secret societies to which such politicians belong.
When the film was released, a big deal was made in the Hollywood press about the films’ two stars,Tom Cruise Mapother IV and Nicole Kidman, who were married throughout the three years it took to make the film,but divorced soon after the film was completed and released.Both stars had signed an open-ended contract,in which they made themselves available for however long it took Kubrick to complete the film.In fact, at 15 months, the shoot for Eyes Wide Shut is included in the Guinness Book of World Records,for the ‘longest constant movie shoot’ of any motion picture in the history of Hollywood,which included an unbroken span of 46 weeks.Also, Tom Cruise was filmed 90 times walking through a doorway,which accounts for a second entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for Eyes Wide Shut.This film makes for a bizarre viewing experience,unless that is, one understands a bit about the symbolism employed by the Illuminati,and EWS is jam-packed with it! Instead of concentrating on plot elementsin an attempt to dissect what the author of the original story was trying to get across to his readers,I will concentrate on the symbolism that is found in this film, as there is certainly enough of that to keep both you and I busy for awhile.This symbolism is so important to the understanding of how these people in the Illuminati operate,and since there are questionable aspects to Mr. Kubrick’s sudden tragic death, this a story that needs to be told.
I have shown EWS to various people in my life,and each and every one of them were left scratching their heads, that is,until I explained the symbolism behind the film.Once this symbolism is understood, only then does the film begin to make sense.This film is a fitting metaphor for our times, as we face the reality of those among us who are asleep,and those of us who are awake, as our world has fallen under the influences of very dark and evil forces.This is NOT to say, however, that the Illuminati are only in our collective imagination.

The Misleading Beginning
 At a casual glance, EWS appears to be a story about sex and sexual fidelity, monogamy, and sexual fantasy.One of the films more memorable scenes was of Nicole Kidman getting undressed in front of a mirror and a window,her back to the camera.This occurs right at the beginning of the film, and it appears that this film is about sexual infidelity.The films’ sexual themes were reinforced by the song playing on the soundtrack,Chris Isaak performing Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing. The lyrics talk about sexual infidelity,and it provided fitting music for Ms. Kidman’s striptease.Additionally, because this opening scene involves both a window and a mirror,it might be said that EWS could be described as a peek inside the married life of a couple,which is itself, a hall of mirrors.The mirror is a symbol of the human soul .


My God is full of Stars 

Near the beginning of the film, Dr. William Harford and his lovely wife Alice attend a Christmas party held by Victor Ziegler and his wife, Illona.The thing that attracted my attention, however, were the strange decorations that hung upon the walls.One of these decorations appeared at first to be an eight-pointed star with a ring of Saturn around its’ mid-section.

This is shown in the screenshot below:


Alice Harford with Sandor Szavost.

Please note that the lighted flowers on the back wall are actually pentagrams.At the opening party at Victor Ziegler’s house, Alice Harford meets up with and dances with a Hungarian man.The name of this character is Sandor Szavost.This character shares his name with the creator of the Church of Satan, Anton Sandor LaVey.This would be an accurate analogy, as members of the global elite are all dedicated to either Lucifer or Satan.Their religion has them believe that both Lucifer and Satan are good,and the God of the Christians has forsaken these so-called fallen angels, and is therefore, an enemy God.This type of thinking is extremely twisted, and represents what some have called a Satanic Reversal — evil is good, lies are truth, death is life, and darkness is light.

Through the Looking Glass 

It is a way of saying that what is above us in the heavens is the same as what resides within us in the human body; a scientific principle that has been proven to be true all the way down to the level of quantum physics.

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. So, as the viewer watches the film, the audience is left to wonder which parts of the story are real, and which are dreams. It took Kubrick thirty years to make EWS, and throughout all those many years, there was no competing interest in making a film of Dream Story.

Kubrick, in writing the screenplay, employed many fiction devices to drive home his interpretation of the story. For example, the character name Dr. Bill is an obvious pun that should require no further explanation. It has also been said that the last name of the lead characters of Bill and Alice were taken from comments that the character of the doctor should be like a Harrison Ford type — thus, Kubrick came up with the last name of Harford. Using Alice for the wife’s name references the character of Alice In Wonderland. Calling the wife Alice subconsciously reminds the audience of Alice’s strange trip ‘Through The Looking-Glass,’ which is exactly where we find Alice in the following screenshot.

The underlying theme and allusion to Lewis Carroll’s books Alice In Wonderland (1865),and Through The Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There (1871)(aka – Alice Through The Looking Glass) is highly appropriate,as EWS deals with the issues surrounding reality versus the dream-world,and this metaphor could not be an accident,and had to have been inserted into the storyline by Mr. Kubrick on purpose.This is also a fitting metaphor for our times,as many people seem to be fast asleep as to the evil that is being carried out in their names,and in the names of their children, and our nation.The down the rabbit hole metaphor has been widely used in the contemporary American mass media,such as with perhaps the most infamous instance,which appeared in the 1999 film The Matrix, which also dealt with many of these same issues of reality versus dreams.

To the End of the Rainbow

At the Christmas party at the beginning of EWS, while his wife Alice is being hit on by Sandor Szavost,Dr. Harford is being led away by two gorgeous model types. He asks where they are leading him, to which they reply:“To the end of the rainbow.”The seven-colored rainbow is used as a hypnotic device.Douglas Monroe, in his book of Druidic magic, describes the rainbow in the following manner:“The rainbow is a true sign of magic, it exists in both worlds at once!


One other interesting bit of EWS trivia, is that the small daughter of Dr. Bill and Alice Harford,is named Helena, after Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.It should also interest the viewer of this film 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.Stanley Kubrick was careful to bring the Masonic Lodge into the preceedings,which may be yet another reason WHY he was murdered EXACTLY 666 days before January 1, 2001

— the first day of the year in which his most famous film takes place.


Fidelio and the Seven Gates of Hell
The use of Fidelio as the password to get into the Masked Ball is an example
of a literary device known as foreshadowing, a term referring to clues that provide a glimpse of what is to come.
On the Wikipedia website, Fidelio is said to be a story of a woman who rescues
her husband from death in a political prison.
The Masked Ball is exactly that, as Harford comes to be threatened by the man in the red cloak;
it should also be noted that the high-priest who carries out Illuminati black magic rituals also wears red,
a color symbolizing the bloodline that is of paramount importance.
Just as his situation appears rather grim, Dr. Harford is suddenly saved by a mysterious woman,
who sacrifices herself at the last moment.

Because the Illuminati are extremely political, this was a rescue from a political prison of Dr. Harford’s own making.

As Dr. Bill Harford arrives at the masked ritual, he gives the password, Fidelio,

which as we are told in the film, is the name of Beethoven’s only opera.
He has to pass through seven people to enter what the DVD calls THE ABYSS.
This is certainly interesting, as it may be symbolic of the Seven Gates of Hell –
— or the seven rings that surround Dante’s Inferno —
– which are themselves, symbolic of the Seven Gates of Hell.
There were two men outside of the house, one man at the front door,
one man in the vestibule (where Harford gives the password a second time),
another man takes his cloak, one man stands at the inner door,
with the seventh masked man standing directly outside of the ritual itself.
 Into the Abyss
The music that is being played during this scene is extremely creepy and was written and performed by Jocelyn Pook,
and the selection was originally titled “Backwards Priests.”
For this film, it was renamed “Masked Ball.”
This selection can be found on the film soundtrack, as well as her album titled “Deluge”
(or alternately “Flood”). It is positively haunting, and creates some unforgettable tension.
The chanting is in reverse, and is of a Romanian priest giving a mass in Latin.
The first voice is deep and bellicose, and is obviously the voice of a high-priest,
as it invokes a seriousness that was rather disturbing upon first hearing this combined with the sights in the film itself.
 Dr. Harford is asked to kindly remove his mask.
Incidentally, in the above screenshot, there is 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.
Alice’s Deception 
Also, Alice wakes up to find Bill’s mask on the pillow next to her.This begs the question as to whether or not Alice was at the Masked Ball,or was her finding the mask just a discovery of her husband’s amorous secret life?

Then, there is the matter of a ‘dream’ that Alice describes,where she was made love to by a nearly endless line of men whom she did not know.As she is describing this, it matches extremely closely to what her own husband witnessed at the ritual he snuck into.




The photo below shows this statue juxtaposed with the same mask as seen in the film. Incidentally, the largest landowners in Buckinghamshire, where these EWS statues can be found, are the Rothschild family, one of the 13 Illuminati bloodlines that appear to control the direction of the entire planet.



Caped figures wearing one of the masks from EWS were seen in an IBM television commercial shown on television during 2003,where a distressed business executive is relentlessly chased by “tough customers.”

These masks are shown immediately below, where the IBM commercial is shown in the center,flanked by two shots of this same mask from the film, which of course, is all one big coincidence, I am sure.The name of this advertising campaign was entitled Dreams, which ties in to the themes of EWS.The name of this specific advertisement was entitled Mob, which carries its’ own connotations.
