Falling Down Too Fast
As readers of Da WWWiz are aware, I think that Kubrick encoded in his films a foreknowledge of September 11, 2001. In some schools, these "clues" are commonly attributed to a wider phenomena of mystical synchronicity. Sure--but my take is that Kubrick was well aware of the complete significance of his text at the time of production. You must decide.
In Eyes Wide Shut, we meet a certain Mr. Milich. The term Milich can be decoded as 2001. Mil reads as millennium, and Ich as the German pronoun I. The I transliterates into the editorial "one" and then the numeral 1. The final yield is Millennium One, which adds a calender year to the popular missapprehension of 2000 as the Millennium. The first year on the calender of the Common Era is the Year One, not the Year Zero. The proper millennium of our times is 2001, not 2000. Thus the moniker of Milich = 2001.
Here, Milich hints that the collapse of WTC 1,2 and 7 is not as advertised, and also tells that the final and impossibly quick crumbling of the Constitutional USA and the values it upholds.
My hair is "...falling down too fast...". Here the term hair is a homophone of both heir and of air. Milich's heir is representative of the Roman Era, culminating in the Republic of USA. After the Millennium, the tradition, the heir-archy of Roman Democracy falls down too fast, just like those pesky buildings in Lower Manhattan. A pair of Black and White Pillars in the background between the men (mannequins) cues Solomon's Temple and the Soloman Bros Building (7). Termed as air, we also find a connection to the dawning of Aquarius, the Fixed Air Sign. In Tarot, Air symbolizes Total Authority, which can be only Satanic.
Dr. Bill drops the rare term trichologist.
What do you call a German trichologist? Herr Doktor Hair Doctor. I wrote this joke to try out on my MD, and he didn't get it. He was unfamiliar with the term.
Kubrick uses the term tricho to indicate the American Red, White and Blue by way of the French Flag which they call the Tricolor. The presence of Lady Liberty in both NYC and Paris strengthens the connection. Moreover, tricho derives from the Greek to weave. Take a look at the old school painted advert in Red White and Blue (seen above the Taxi Cab) as Dr. Bill drives to meet Milich. Sewing Thread and textile weaves.
Just what is Stanley weaving at? You all know my opinion.
