    From the director behind influential masterpieces like The Killing, Paths of Glory, Spartacus, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining & Full Metal Jacket, Eyes Wide Shut marks the final entry in the decades-spanning, unprecedented & extraordinary filmmaking career of Stanley Kubrick. And just like all of his reappraised works, is a classic that unveils more of its intricate layers on multiple viewings.

    Set in New York City, Eyes Wide Shut tells the story of…

    A singularly haunting and lovely final film from one of the true masters of cinema. This is perhaps the most intoxicatingly beautiful and strange of all his films, as it takes place in a world unmistakably ours, yet ever so slightly off-kilter, a feeling which only grows over the course of the film. Cruise and Kidman absolutely stun in this film. Cruise essentially carries the film with an exquisite blend of intensity, confusion, and pain that is conveyed in every…

    The swan song of famed director Stanley Kubrick (he died a few days after delivering the final print of the film), Eyes Wide Shut is also quite possibly his most misunderstood film. It is a layered look at the unfulfilling life of an upper-class, bourgeois New York couple (played by Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman) and the various ways in which money, power, sex and intimacy play a role in them trying to make an emotional connection with one another.…

    Of all of the themes it explores, this film isn't really about sex.

    One of the elements that contributes to the dream-like atmosphere, and the smooth narrative feel is the unconventional use of dissolves. For example, when Tom Cruise enters the costume shop, we see him outside the building - dissolve - he's inside, or we see the mansion of the cult - dissolve - he's inside. It definitely works to make the pace as fluid as it is, but there is something interesting about the decision not to show him enter certain buildings on a hard cut. This thing need more rewatches.

    To keep this review short: Although I'm not a great fan of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman "Eyes Wide Shut" thrilled me. Due to my obsession for Kubricks movies I watched this film years ago and as you can see - to me it's not (much) worse than most of the other Kubrick flicks. Staying in mind since the last time I've seen this film is its aura between tension and suspense, erotic and cryptic. Having no equal the masked ball scene envolved to an embodiment of Kubricks skills doing film.

    That "Eyes Wide Shut" is, in the humble opinion of the very man typing this write-up for it, director Stanley Kubrick’s greatest film is quite a compliment in itself. The man is seriously, hands down, my all-time favorite director. The way he shoots his films with such iciness is present as much as the eccentricities he finds within his actors. Kubrick’s films are so full of darkness when showing human nature, but his animating of it makes for delicious sympathy.…

    In typical Stanley Kubrick fashion, the director sat on what would become Eyes Wide Shut for three decades, originally intending to adapt Albert Schnlitzer's 20's novel Traumnovelle (Dream Story) after 2001: A Space Odyssey, before the opportunity to adapt A Clockwork Orange came along. No one is likely sad he made that choice but one wonders what Eyes Wide Shut would have looked like in a completely different age. Would Kubrick even have made the same film? We'll never know.…
