    It never ceases to amaze me how much people over analyze this movie. You could make Showgirls a masterpiece viewing it the way some view EWS. After reading countless explanations of this film I've come to the conclusion that no one knows what the hell it is about. The Kubrick family should just come out with a book explaining what Kubrick meant to end all this nonsense.

    Although the review is quite long, it does make some good points. Kubrick didn't put anything in his films that was useless. So every book, painting, name, line has some significance to what he is trying to say or portray. I would call it overanalyzation if it was anyone but Kubrick.
