Off all movies that have come through the Hollywood screen, Eyes Wide Shut arguably has been described as one of the first movies to really publicize the idea of a secret underground society.
Since the release of Eyes Wide Shut in 1999 its core message about a secret cabal has been lost amidst a flurry of new movies launched which also have made reference to the Illuminati such as Race to Witch Mountain, The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.
In Dan Brown’s thriller Angels and Demons, Harvard "symbologist" Robert Langdon, played in the 2009 film by Tom Hanks, races against time to stop a secret religious order, the Illuminati, from destroying Vatican City.

In truth the Vatican archives are actually today housed in a fortress-like wing of the Vatican behind St Peter’s Basilica, with the avenue leading to the building watched over by a phalanx of Swiss Guards in ceremonial uniform and officers from the city state’s own police force, the Gendarmerie. There are more than 52 miles of shelving in an underground, concrete- walled bunker, as well as exquisite 16th century wooden cabinets packed with priceless parchment letters sent by princes, potentates, heretics and heathens to the Holy See.

The oldest document in the archives dates back to the 8th century, while others relate to the trials of the Knights Templar from 1308-1310 and the enrolment of the first contingent of the Swiss Guard in 1505.
Angels and Demons is a prime example of a new trend appearing in Hollywood over the last decade: secret societies being at the center of movie intrigues. Some might find this surprising since secret societies are supposed to be…well…secret. Many people in the movie industry are part of those Brotherhoods so what is the reasoning behind this? In the 20th century, movies about Freemasonry or the Illuminati were rare and far apart. There has however been a major switch during the last decade. The world wide public has witnessed major blockbuster movies featuring those Brotherhoods at the center of the story. Their exoteric symbols are abundantly displayed and some of their… Read more…
