greetings! on this very chunky special long episode, i rewatched Stanley Kubrick's final film Eyes Wide Shut (1999) and talk about its various allusions and resonances to the modern day hell world we are all trudging through now. turns out there's a lot going on in this film! major spoilers for the entirety of the movie.
hope you enjoy it! i've been much busier this month but hopefully this longer episode makes up for it. stay tuned for a new episode about either music or a game next month.
