The moon landing conspiracy is centered on Stanley Kubrick, who was secretly contracted by the US Government to film a fake moon landing. This was done so as to fool the people while in reality, there was never anyone who landed on the moon. This conspiracy was secretly planned, and the film was of high quality to make everyone believe that it was true. Those who were involved were then sworn to secrecy on pain of death. This was to make them swear to keep the whole matter a secret from the public.
The Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20, 1969, was one of the most astonishing achievements in the human history. That day, an estimated 530 million TV viewers watched U.S. astronauts take their first steps on the moon. Just a few years later, some people claimed the giant leap for humanity had been faked. Conspiracy theories that the moon landing was a hoax that the U.S. government had staged to win the space race with the Soviets began to gain traction in the mid-1970s. Although these claims were false and easily debunked, they have persisted to this day. The whole conspiracy remained a secret during the time that Stanley Kubrick was alive. However, it began to circulate immediately after his death. One of the most prominent mentions seriously alleging this conspiracy came from a writer and director named Jay Wiener, who began publicizing what he saw as clues supporting this concept. This is explained through some of the evidence like the shinning, the baking powder cans, the hotel manager, and the cold war.
The shinning is one of the movies that Kubrick revealed his confession of the moon landing conspiracy. Jay Wiener uses the film in support of the conspiracy. Jack, the father's the quote practical, pragmatic guy, wants to be a great artist, and he is committed to doing anything to accomplish his goal of becoming a writer. In order to support this, Jay cites several perceived physical similarities between Stanley and Jack. Jack's practice of smoking Marlboro is the same kind that Kubrick smoked to the earlier point about his appearance. He says Jack looks unkempt unshaven as the film progresses. He begins looking more and more like the behind the scenes footage of coupe Cuba Kubrick.
Additionally, shine represents America; it is shiny, wealthy, but it is built upon the blood and terrible secrets. This is also an analogy of the conspiracy on the moon landing. The idea that people could have landed on the moon is an idea that is plausible and exciting. However, the fact that it was only a conspiracy makes it terrible.
The baking powder cans
There is a whole crazy stockpile of Calumet baking powder that the traditional Indian chief represents. A Halloran is giving the tour of the kitchen in the same profile as the Indian. This, therefore, suggests that Kubrick is drawing a parallel visually between what would happen historically to Indians and African-Americans as well in the United States.
The hotel manager
The hotel manager represents the face of the American government. His office has a flag with red white and blue colors; expressing the United States of America’s flag. He sits in front of an eagle; the power behind the throne and the Lunar Lander of the Apollo 11 mission. Jay notes that he was called The Eagle so the deal that through the agreement that Jack makes with this manager, he can pursue his creative interests so long as he takes care of the Overlook. And the manager tells Jack his main job is to prevent the Overlook Hotel from looking like it is decaying. When this is taken into context, it would mean that he is needed to fake this thing, so it doesn't look like they were the decaying force within the cold war powers which is another big thing.
Stanley Kubrick and the Cold War
According to Jay, the representative of the Cold War between the USSR and the U.S. is an effort to hide real American technology. Flying saucers, in his opinion, are the primary motivations behind the faked moon landing. The Torrence family then in America and Kubrick are trapped in the Cold War. There is also another thing that goes that ties into the Native American artistic motifs right that are throughout the shining in the room where Jack is attempting to write and going crazier and crazier and throwing a tennis ball. The wall has the Native American motif that, according to Jay Looks like a bunch of rockets.
In the original version in the shining, Danny experiences this horrible psychic event in Room 217 in the film. This occurs in room 237, and Jay argues that the average distance between the Earth and the moon is two hundred thirty-seven thousand miles. Therefore, this change in room numbers is an illusion of this idea. Therefore the Apollo 11 landing was faked, and Jay believes so due to the nature of shifting perceptions of reality in the room. Additionally, the fact that Jack later lies to his wife about it, claiming he saw nothing in the room is interpreted by Jay to mean that Kubrick lied about faking the moon landing.
THE ILLUMINATI/ EYES WIDE SHUT CONSPIRACY
Stanley Kubrick’s is alleged as being part of a massive Freemason-Illuminati conspiracy and devoted his film career to hiding clues of its existence in his film. Eventually, the Illuminati decided he had crossed the line with his final film Eyes Wide Shut and went on to assassinate Kubrick. Scientology is considered as Hollywood's largest religion. It is a cult that is secretive, convicted of international fraud, and seemingly fronted by Tom Cruise. The same Tom Cruise who just happened to be the star of Kubrick’s final film. As a result of this, many people are persuaded that the film is a warning about Scientology. Aside from the film featuring a shady society of no-good costly types, there is the fact that Kubrick himself had a personal interest in the cult. His daughter Vivian vanished into its clutches in 1998 and had not spoken to her family since.
The masks, robes, and the rituals are some of the ideas that Kubrick got embroiled in a massive global freemason conspiracy. He devoted much of his career to referencing these through symbols and codes just like the moon landing shining argument. While he was always pushing the envelope, he crossed the line for the secret of conspiracy when he depicted specifically trauma-based mind control similar to concepts explored and things like Project Monarch and other related theories. And that instead of Kubrick passing away after turning in the film he was assassinated.
The film The Illuminati by Stanley Kubrick has some scenes that are a bit weird and seem out of place. One such incidence is where Tom Cruise is walking through the streets of New York at night by himself, and he passes some guys who don't get out of his way. They bump into him. There is some suggestion that the scene was almost as Kubrick's potential commentary on Tom. There is also an article in Vanity Fair that discusses specifically how Kubrick pushed the relationship of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise on set and offset.
Additionally, there are a lot of arguments about the cut of the film. The final cut on Kubrick's contract leaves one questioning. There are some hard lines preventing studios from editing his work without his consent. He designed all the posters himself. He cut all the trailers himself, and he was heavily involved in selling the movie even after he was done working on it. After his untimely death, critics and researchers wonder whether the cut that premiered in theaters was the actual final cut he wanted. So were their scenes that might have been left out without his consent or altered.
Kubrick was contractually obligated even though he had final cut he was still contractually obligated to deliver a rated film for the U.S. market. And since he died, he never had a chance to go back and forth with the NPA over that rating once they did deliver an NC 17 because of some of the nudity and the orgy sequence. Therefore they were at a predicament and could not release the films to most of the places. The reason for that was because the films had obscene scenes and did not meet the standards of the film industry. Later, the film released had some scenes missing and therefore revealed that some of it had been removed. It showed that it was not the same as the original.
There is a dreamlike kind of feeling that he was trying to convey and even though he does have second unit photography happening in actual New York when one looks at the movie it does not feel like New York. It feels like a dream idea of what New York is, or less like putting Tom Cruise through the ringer for the heck of it. This reveals that indeed, the events were not occurring in reality. Probably more down to technical perfectionism of Kubrick's part to have it not feel like it was just a bogus effect shot or something.
It is by and large where the conversation about Eyes Wide Shut lives. It is known that Stanley Kubrick was not a stranger to conspiracy theories on his own. There is a famous scene in Dr. Strangelove, where he mentions fluoride. That is a pretty classic scene from the film. Although his thoughts on fluoride are not known, his views on the concept of extraterrestrial intelligence are known.
The critical point is that all the standard attributes were assigned to God. These attributes in history could equally well be the characteristics of biological entities. Billions of years ago, they were at a stage of development similar to man's own and later evolved into something as to promote from man as remote from the primordial Jews from which he first emerged.
In conclusion, there is no question that Kubrick's work lends itself to a vast array of interpretation. That is the thing about translations of works of art, and descriptions are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Ultimately it could be argued that all works of art belong to the audience perceiving them. Because once the artist is dead, then they have no say which is a very controversial point. Kubrick specifically arguably communicates to the audience on a semi or subconscious level. He accesses those primal archetypes cited by people like Carl younger Fraser, the author of ‘The Golden bow or Joseph Campbell.
The Shining and the moon landing theory the interpretations do honestly seem pretty subjective but fascinating and compelling. The problem is some inaccuracies poke holes in the case. As for the idea of a secret cabal functioning behind the scenes pulling the strings of industries religions and governments across the world. The entertainment industry certainly does have a version of that. They are called producers.
There is a frenetic pace that is inherent in the filmmaking process. There are significant changes that occur to everything from the script to the set dressing and the camera angle. It happens in real time when you have a director with a vision who is seeing something that is not necessarily written down. The reason why Kubrick needed 8 18 months to shoot Eyes Wide Shut, is because he wanted to be able to try things this way. He wanted to do a scene in different places, change the lighting, and even drop actors. He prepared well before shooting the film. This kind of thing occurs in filmmaking all the time. And sometimes when you think about someone like him making these films that every moment is planned out in a notebook. To conclude, these conspiracies by Stanley Kubrick have been explained in order to let people know the truths and facts about what exactly happened.
