A guy got involved in something wild (Hooker died, maybe linked to her helping him), looked for a conspiracy, and the investigation went no where.
Yet there were questions, ..., stuff left unanswered, ....
These were movies of the 60s and 70s. Down with Establishment! What are they not telling us? Be rebellious. Question authority! Worked back then, great to watch back then, during THAT TIME. Or great to watch maybe 2 decades later. But so much of the world, our thinking, our taste have changed since then.
With X-files, there came people screaming conspiracies from building structures to people in government to restaurant planning. Now it's just unfounded rambling.
So, with Eyes wide shut, Conspiracy became a bunch of coincidences and happen-stances.
And the nudity, ...everything there was shocking, arousing, exciting, ...if shown during the 70s, ...but it's just ho-hum nowadays (Internet ruined the rebellious and titillating effect).
But I'm not one to hinder movie making. I want NC-17 adult movies, I want family movies, ...and I want up-and-coming movie makers to take this medium and make it better. Tarantino made a Western movie interesting and fun to watch, so others can do that for thriller, rom-com, sci-fi, animation and sexy movies.
