    "No dream is ever just a dream."

    This magnificent film feels different with each viewing. It's haunting in every way and filled with so much subtext and symbolism that it is practically impossible to have the same experience each time around. It felt especially different this time because of Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief and all that was revealed in that documentary. It's not hard to imagine David Miscavige under that red cloak or that Tom Cruise…

    there’s a lot to think about in that last ten minutes, but ultimately "give up your inquiries which are completely useless" are the film's resounding words.

    no separation of truth and manipulation. no difference between paranoia and logical investigation. so it's hard to determine where one thought ends and where other thoughts begin. also impossible to decide where the terror comes from and if it's there from the beginning: "umm, I think that's my glass?" "I'm absolutely certain of it"

    Sexual jolts disrupt Manhattan physician Bill Harford's equilibrium. At an elegant Christmas party, two "models" hit on him, he watches a Lothario try to pick up his tipsy wife, he aids a woman sprawled naked in a bathroom after an overdose. The next night, his wife reveals sexual fantasies with a stranger; a dead patient's daughter throws herself at him; as he walks, brooding, six teen boys hurl homophobic insults at him; a streetwalker takes him to her flat; he…

    Eyes Wide Shut is an adaptation of the dream and reality-blurring novella Dream Story by Arthur Schnitzler, a Viennese contemporary of Sigmund Freud. The film begins with issues of marital infidelity arising between Bill Harford (Tom Cruise), a wealthy New York doctor, and his wife Alice (Nicole Kidman). Called away to see a patient, Bill experiences a number of strange incidents and becomes involved in a sinister conspiracy beyond his understanding. Unlike many directors who approach dreamlike stories with overt…

    I can't get over how much I love this movie. It's so eerie in its atmosphere and the whole thing feels like a nightmare that you just can't wake up from. Easily Kubrick's most underrated film and it's a shame that most people don't appreciate this.

    For someone who already loved it, it improved with my second viewing a lot. It's very driven by its tone and underlying sense of danger/uncertainty. Both Kidman and Cruise give terrific performances in their…

    Part 16 of my 12 Directors x 2 Unseen Films thingamajig.

    Kubrick's cold style has never been more detrimental to his filmmaking than it is here. An exploration of relationships and sexuality should have deeply drawn characters and, well, intimacy, even if in sparse amounts. But Cruise is bland and his character is barely knowable, and Kidman just doesn't have much to do. The sex scenes in the cult are cold and dispassionate, which is good, but the sex scenes…

    This film mesmerises me. It's absolutely gorgeous to look at, the story is compelling, really creepy at times and some scenes just have me so on edge. And that music, shudder, so simple yet so disturbing!

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

    What the fuck did I just watch? One of his most chilling films, you truly have no clue what is going on in Kubrick's final film but it beautifully works. The music keeps you on nerve, the plot is so thick and you forget that it takes place in one night. The scenes of the cult are some of the most disturbing and fear inducing scenes ever. Gahhhhh!!!! I'm gonna miss Kubrick!!! The only thing I didn't like and don't…
