I welcome back my good friend Pearse Redmond to the show and we talked about the film Eyes Wide Shut, looking into the background of its star, senior scientologist and state-sponsored film star Tom Cruise. We discussed Stanley Kubrick’s relationship with conspiracy theories and secret societies and whether the film is a warning about them, or whether he enjoyed promoting these sorts of theories. In this typically broad conversation we also touched on the mainstreaming of conspiracy, Alex Jones’s infiltration of Bohemian Grove not long after the film was released, and linking in with the last episode whether the audience watching Eyes Wide Shut are to be considered ‘willing fools’. There is much more besides in this conversation, so don’t miss it.
