*Confused, contemplative stare*
Kubrick just once again proves how he is just on some higher level. He doesn't want anything big to happen, there's surprisingly little blood or violence, which feels weird to say, but I mean the violence isn't the star of the movie. The confusion is.
See, I think the theme of Stanley Kubrick's work is confusion. He doesn't give us answers because the answers could never be as scary as what we imagine them to be. Nothing is explained here and that's why the slow hypnosis feeling creates the dread in you stomach. So... so yeah... It's great.
