ESOTERIC HOLLYWOOD: Eyes Wide Shut as Ritual Working

small bookJay Dyer
21st Century Wire

In this episode of Esoteric Hollywood, I decode and deconstruct the symbolism and narrative structure of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.

Delving into the ritual initiatory aspects, I consider Bill as a mark for the sex cult, and propose a unique thesis regarding the role of Alice and their presumed upper class status. Part noir and part surrealism, the dream state blends seamlessly with reality, but your eyes will be wide open.
