    Really like this one. Partially due to the fact that the subject matter was right up my alley (e.g., psychological, occult, suspense) and partially due to the fact that it is such a damn well made movie. Although long, the film uses its runtime to slow down the pace and draw scenes out to extract every inch of suspense from the viewer as possible. The long takes - especially those during the iconic orgy scene - work to create a…

    This review will not be anything like a review. My mind is partially in shambles after this film and will not be capable of forming coherent paragraphs for the time being. I'm just going to spew out sentences in a disjointed manner.

    I was supposed to watch this yesterday to commemorate Kubrick's birthday but things happened. A belated commemoration is better than no commemoration at all.

    There was lots and lots of following shots, possibly steadicam.

    Waltz scene was extremely…

    When I decided to watch this movie, the only knowledge I had regarding its plot was that it was very sexual. I would still have to agree with that but it's so much more than that. After watching it once, I was completely confused and pretty much in shock as to how explicit this movie is. I thought it had no real plot and it was a bad movie. Now, I have a completely opposite opinion after watching it a…

    Kubrick's favorite of his own films, and as made clear on a rewatch, one of mine as well. Amazing movie, amazing direction.

    tom cruise is one of the greatest paranoid actors of all time. the way he's never quite there but also always *too there* makes us question what he sees, even sydney pollack confirms to the viewer that the events of eyes wide shut probably do happen, even if not in the way that cruise imagined. cruise's collaborations with spielberg are full of a similar paranoia, but kubrick channels cruise's unfocused gaze into the vengeful fantasy of a man who thinks…

    I remember catching this on tv late at night but i was too young then to continue watching till the end (i had a bed time), so until now i didn't know how it ended.
    I think that Stanley Kubrick was a genius. His work was so badly interpreted by critics that i, if i was in his place, would have been very frustrated of the reviews he was getting.
    I am surprised that this was marketed as an erotic…

    I had fond memories of this being really fantastic, and really creepy, and really atmospheric & moody.  Of course, I think the last time I saw it was like 2002 or something.  There are some points of interest here, but mostly it's obnoxious.  The dialogue, in particular, is just really fucking terrible, in the sense that Tom Cruise's character, no matter what somebody says to him, he just basically repeats it as a question.  I'm not kidding, if you watch the…

    Such a brilliant fucking film that there's nothing my insignificant mind could pick apart in a single viewing. Despite a handful a separate threads running through the film simultaneously, Kubrick masterfully streamlines all these these into a concise, engrossing experience.

    Maybe in my Top Five Kidman? Made me wish more films were both filmed at Christmas and looked this beautiful.

    I believe that it was Frank Ocean who put it best when he said that this was, in fact, "some visionary shit."

    Eyes Wide Shut, released in 1999, was the Master's last film he would ever make. And he proclaimed that this very film would be his greatest contribution to the art of film.

    Eyes Wide Shut is fantastic. The film revolves around Bill and Alice Hartford's perfect world (a little too perfect) as it begins to crumble when Bill is told by Alice that she had a sexual fantasy about a man she met.

    Bill, in utter shock and disbelief, runs…
