Video May Show Stanley Kubrick Admitting Moon Landing Hoax

Has the Holy Grail that moon landing doubters have been searching for since 1969 finally been found? A filmmaker has released transcripts from his upcoming documentary about Stanley Kubrick recorded just a few days before Kubrick’s death which imply that Stanley admitted filming a fake moon landing and forced his fellow filmmaker to keep the admission hidden from the public for 15 years. The 15 years are up … is the truth about the moon landing up too?

The documentary is titled “Shooting Stanley Kubrick” and was created by filmmaker T. Patrick Murray. Murray claims that Kubrick, who was notorious for avoiding interviews, granted him one on March 4, 1999, purportedly to discuss the soon-to-be-released “Eyes Wide Shut” and the rest of his large body of work. Instead, fueled by Johnny Walker Blue, Kubrick appears to confess the following:

I perpetrated a huge fraud on the American public, which I am now about to detail, involving the United States government and NASA, that the moon landings were faked, that the moon landings ALL were faked , and that I was the person who filmed it.

Before Murray could run out and tell the world, Kubrick allegedly made him sign an 88-page nondisclosure agreement stating that the admission would be kept secret until 15 years after his death. Surprisingly (although maybe not to him), Kubrick passed away three days later, making 2014 (Murray must be a slow worker) the year it could finally be released.

The theories surrounding a possible Kubrick faking of the moon landing have been circulating for years. They’re partly based on Kubrick having just completed “2001: A Space Odyssey” and had all kinds of Moon props and special effects available. Kubrick was rumored to have provided the fake lunar footage for Apollo 11 and 12 but the launches and landings were real. Some theories can also be traced to various proven fake documentaries and stories, such as one claiming Kubrick did it to protect his brother Raul who was a member of the American Communist Party – Kubrick had no brother Raul. Kubrick also allegedly put a hint in “The Shining” where a character wears an Apollo 11 sweater.

A hint?

What do we make of “Shooting Stanley Kubrick” and T. Patrick Murray? Murray was an unknown filmmaker in 1999 (still is) – why would Kubrick entrust this story to him? Who helped Kubrick write an 88-page NDA – where are those people and where is the NDA?

The person in the video looks kind of like Kubrick - is it actually him? Another video of what are allegedly outtakes of the Kubrick video claims that it’s really an actor who is addressed in an outtake as “Tom.”

What do you think? Is the video for real (meaning the moon landings were faked) or is this whole thing (my apologies to Churchill) a hoax wrapped in a ruse inside a fraud?
