Daughter of Stanley Kubrick on Activism/Awakening

^ yeah that's what I was sayin... he's exposing this reality.

I just think that if the worst they do is have sex orgies no one is likely to get upset. Whatever was deleted in the edit was likely something more incriminating

I just found this article on EWS, it says that 20 minutes of footage ended up on the cutting room floor. But it suggests that it was Kubrick's decision. This is a non CT take on the movie, but still an interesting read, especially the way he ties it in with some of Kubrick's other movies.

It's way more than soft porn for housewives. I'm going to watch it again, haven't seen it in a long time.

Cruise has featured in a number of movies that feature a Pro-NWO theme, or a high level of predictive programming.

One day i'll add up the number of movies he's made where he wears a face mask of some kind, and maybe try to figure out the symbolism, if any.

As you may know, Eyes Wide Shut, was digitally altered for the North American market. Below are the graphic examples of what was altered from Kubrick's original cut. It's hard to believe that Kubrick let Warner Bros amend his film in this way and after seeing the footage, its hard to explain exactly why.

Scene 2:
Two hooded characters were digitally added to block some activity..

Scene 3:
An entire second bench was digitally added with characters to hide some nastiness.

Scene 4:
Two mannequin like figures block activity on a credenza.

The cut scene as described by the firsthand source:

The original cut of Eyes Wide shut contained a scene which was cut out prior to public release. The existence of this scene is only known among a select few people who signed strict secrecy contracts with Kubrick/Warner Bros. The length of this scene was approximately 22 seconds.

Dr. Harford is Tom Cruise’s character.

At 1:19:27 Dr. Harford finds himself separated from the masked woman. He walks down a hallway distantly following a couple. He turns to see an empty room with a pentagram-like circle in the center. The reaction in his eyes can be seen in a close up. Acting as if he did not see the ceremonial room he continues to walk down the hallway which can be seen at 1:19:30.

My analysis of what this scene would have done for Eyes Wide Shut:

This scene would have been the climax of the entire movie, perhaps only as a subliminal climax. The sex scenes afterwards seem to be a conditioning for the audience to almost forget about the empty ceremonial room, causing Dr. Harford’s character to relax a bit.

As we later find out the masked woman says, “Take me, I am ready to redeem him.”, The red robed leader asks, “You are ready to redeem him?”, “Yes” replies the masked woman. The red robed one confirms, “Are you sure you understand what you’re taking upon yourself in doing this?”, “Yes” replies the masked woman. At this point Dr. Harford and the audience would forget about the sex scenes and recall the brief viewing of the empty ceremonial room.

The red robed leader then says the following to Dr. Harford, “Very well, you are free, but I warn you, if you make any further inquiries, or if you say a single word to anyone about what you have seen, there will be the most dire consequences for you and your family, do you understand?” Dr. Harford nods in a shaken way and looks up to the woman, who is then escorted away.

Dr. Harford is thinking about the safety of his family & the masked woman who just saved him, in the back of his mind he is also thinking about the empty ceremonial room. With the cut scene in mind, the audience and Dr. Harford are drawn to the human sacrifice conclusion more clearly while seeing the newspaper for the first time. Questions would arise in the mind of the audience, was she sacrificed in the ceremonial room? Is she mutilated? Are the police involved? As Dr. Harford laments over her body at the morgue some of these questions are answered as we see the condition of the body.

The overall theme of the movie is heightened dramatically with the addition of a single 15 second scene. A masterpiece is reduced from great to only good. The lack of Kubrick’s last minute finalized editing especially involving the music score is also a major reason the film felt a little flat. During the pre-screening the film didn’t have any music whatsoever, the final editors relied on Kubrick’s notes to pick and choose what song should go where. I do not believe Kubrick would have chosen that repetitious piano note which plays over and over throughout the film. When a work of art is left in the hands of corporate executives, this sentence needs no conclusion

interesting stuff DA... are those the only edited scenes? the pentagram scene wouldve added a perceived demonic aspect to the occult party for sure...

i just listened to this discussion on the movie with Tom Secker and Pearce Redmond @ http://www.spyculture.com/clandestime-episode-038-eyes-wide-shut/

and they get into Tom being in scientology and them having approval of what movies tom made etc.. his marriage and divorce with Kidman.. That Vivian Kubrick was joining scientology and denounced Stanley around the time of making the movie. She was supposed to do the movie score..... much more. worth a listen
