    Ladies and gentlemen, I have a new favorite film.

    Mind = blown

    Everyone, if you haven't seen this; stop whatever you are doing and buy a copy. Don't rent, don't torrent. Buy a copy.

    Why?

    Because Kubrick's final work of art deserves to be viewed, studied and analyzed over and over again.

    I just can't put into words how much I adore this masterpiece. Every moment, every shot, every line, every camera movement, every stretch of sustained tension; every performance;…

    Why did I enjoy this film so much? Is it the extensive portrayal of sex?; The long, challenging conversations?; Nicole Kidman's long legs? Or is it the fact it's Stanley Kubrick - one of cinema's undeniably accomplished filmmakers.

    The legend's last ever film, Eyes Wide Shut, is an engenious provocative thriller that soaks in your skin from the get-go. Stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman put on a show of delish know-how and flair. The two work well together, while…

    No es el mejor trabajo de Kubrick. Desde el principio se veía muy prometedora, pero Eyes Wide Shut tiene dos partes: la primera, altamente intrigante, donde se muestran los lados algo oscuros del amor, y que contiene una de las mejores escenas que he visto en mi vida, y la segunda parte, que es una caida en picada. La película pierde misterio y da un sentimiento de ambigüedad, y no en el buen sentido.

    A movie hasn't frightened me this way in a long, long time. I couldn't sleep after I finished it... I was rolling around in my bed until six in the morning. It really makes someone as (relatively) young as myself - I'm twenty years old - scared of the future, marriage, commitment, society. There are so many layers to this film, and different ways of interpreting it; if I wanted to spend hours analyzing each scene in the film, I…

    That's how most reasonable people feel about not getting invited to a party, Tom.

    I don't ever use the term "masterpiece" but I've seen this film a million times and I'm pretty damn sure it qualifies as one. It's about what you don't see, not what you do.

    One of the more persistent aspects of Kubrick's films is that the immediate critical response to them, particularly in the latter half of his career, was mixed, but their consensus reputation improved over time. I think there are two reasons for this.

    One, each film from, say, 2001 forward, is in several respects a reversal of the previous film. Dr. Strangelove was an encapsulation of his most notable prior work, crossing the savage critique of inhuman bureaucracy from Paths of…

    Kubrick guides us into the dark underworld of society's elite in Eyes Wide Shut, taking us on a nightmarish journey populated with hidden occult symbols and metaphors throughout. It's a terrific final film from the legendary filmmaker that warrants just as much analysis and interpretation as The Shining.

    God fucking damit! I still don't really like it.

    I recognise it as a good movie and all. But there is just something missing. There is something wrong with it. It's just so boring and not Kubricky. Tom Cruise is just so not right for this movie. And I want to like it!

    I guess I'm gonna have to try again another time.

    This is easily the most haunting film I have ever seen. This one petrifies me. It gets to you on a very primal, instinctive level and devastates you. And that's just how it starts. It goes on to dismantle everything you thought was real and sacred and true. Eyes Wide Shut is a film that festers deep inside of you, lingering, lying in wait. It is a film about sex and marriage and fear and shame and horror and accountability.…

    Didn't think I would find a movie more obscure and head scratching than 2001, but I think Eyes Wide Shut does that.
