Domino? The hooker he meets beforehand (Vanessa Shaw)?
Isn’t the implication that it’s Mandy? Elaborate more on your suspicion about Domino. The consistent costuming (or lack thereof) for the women at the orgy culminates the film’s argument that womens’ individual identities get homogenized to streamline them into commodities for the ruling wealthy class depicted in the movie, but I’ve never watched the scene with the thought that Domino was involved.
wow are u wordy….nvm
no, i don’t think it was literally her. she did have red(dish) hair though, just like almost every other female in the movie
Oh snap! I just got TROLLLLLLED!
Shoulda remembered to never open my big mouth.
It’s Julienne Davis in that scene, so Ben’s right, it’s Mandy. However . . .
Kubrick does quite a lot of visual rhyming between the Alice and Domino and Alice and Mandy—
Alice is a red head, Mandy is a red head
Alice’s purple sheets, Domino’s purple dress
the dressing table mirrors
Visual rhyming: yes…such an ideal way of describing what’s going on across that movie.
Also Alice in her underwear and Sobieski in her underwear.
“Was the girl at the mansion in “Eyes Wide Shut” was it…… Domino?"
I think it’s about time for your grammatical shellacking.
-Also Alice in her underwear and Sobieski in her underwear.-
Right . . . one of the possible conclusions that could be drawn is that all the other significant female characters in the film are “dream versions” of Alice.
yes, Matt Parks, I too think that all the females that Bill meets throughout the night and next morning are dream versions of Alice. They all have red hair and the same sort of body type. They all seem to be sacrificed or arrive at the orgy party. The two girls that proposition bill at the party give a look when Bill tells them “see you later” or something along those lines. We don’t know that about the woman he goes to see after her father has died, or Domino, but we can maybe guess they will be at the party as well. Also, the young girl seems to be sold to those wealthy Japanese men, maybe to the orgy for money?
But what I really think that is that they are just versions of alice and that they culminate, after bills encounter with differenting versions of alice, at an orgy of his wife in his fantasies… maybe. Right after the orgy Alice tells him she was dreaming about having sex with many men. Is she talking about the orgy? Is Bill still in his dream?
Also, the scene where bill enters the cafe and finds out the woman is dead, we hear mozarts reqium being played. Is this requiem of the dead for bills fantasies of his wife at the orgy, culminating in the beauty queen.
If we think about this in Freudian terms and very loosely, can Pollacks character represent the superego in Bills dream? The superego tends to be the replacement of the father figure, the thing that sets order and acts as a officer of it. In Bills world, pollack is def. that. He is at the top of the so called food chain.
