    Film #4 of Scavenger Hunt #4 Challenge
    Task #21: A film with a character who wears a mask!

    This movie swept me up and rushed me through a dark, twisting, confounding, and exciting adventure. I definitely think it will require multiple viewings to get everything from the film, but the few things I could grasp at upon first viewing were great. There are so many ideas about sexuality, marriage, (in)fidelity packed into the plot and speeches that characters give. The…

    While I reviewed a bunch of Stanley Kubrick films last year the one I never got around to reviewing is Kubrick's final film the 1999 Erotic Mystery Drama/Thriller classic Eyes Wide Shut. After finally watching It just like the previous Kubrick film this movie is a masterpiece!! That is by far one of his best!!

    One of the reasons being Its one of the only films of its genre to actually be a great movie. Most films that are Erotic…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Until the very last line, this movie left me utterly frustrated, the film was far from the erotic near pornography that it had been suggested to me it was and I felt honestly a little cheated at some parts. I wanted to go back to those parties, I wanted to stay, I felt so much like I did when I watched David Cronenberg's Shivers where a part of me really wanted to be attacked by a creature like those icky…

    wonderful, i love the heroic journey narrative form, the term "sexual odyssey" is well applied here by the hbo-go plot summery. i've heard the reaction to this movie is polarizing but i can't find much to criticize, fux tha hatazzz

    Thematically blunt, annoyingly opaque and crazy boring study of sex really only serves as a reminder of how good Kubrick CAN be. Icy cold and particularly ugly portrayal of marriage and jealousy that did nothing for me.

    I didn't get much sleep last night and I had to pause the film a few times because I was dozing off from the sleepiness, but I'm pretty sure this is another amazing film from Stanley Kubrick. Every time I doubt him, he manages to prove me wrong.

    On another note, never watch the mansion scene while half-asleep. It will fucking terrify you.

    Every time I watch Kubrick's mesmerizing final film I feel even more like I am watching one of the greatest films ever made.

    It is a great feeling. Very rare.

    The worst film of all time , ever made by anyone.

    Kubrick one of the most important directors of all time died days after he finished this. maybe for pure embarrasment this is a shoddy mess of a film, i gasp when people say its one of their favourites as it is pure 100% Shit.

    I don't hate any movie more than i hate this one and i have good reason to.

    So let me give my reasons for why…

    There's nothing I can say about this film that hasn't already been said by a bunch of film nerds. What I will say is that I intend to watch it again soon because I know I'll pick up on things that I didn't notice this time.

    Eyes Wide Shut is the final completed feature film of legendary director Stanley Kubrick and it concerns some of his most unsettling and creepy subject matter to date. Part-meta commentary on celebrity, part-Rosemary's Baby in regards to conspiracy and occultism, part-male ego study, and part-surrealist dreamscape, Eyes Wide Shut is a tonal culmination of Kubrick's body of work.

    Like all Kubrick films, Eyes Wide Shut is a layered narrative riddled with symbolism and meticulously placed details throughout. Like The Shining…
