Because contrary to popular wisdom, it is one of Kubrik's very finest.

its a good horror movie

it's not a "sex" movie

it's about fucking with the wrong people and how your shitty little yuppie self is nothing when faced with real power

it's also about how nicole kidman blows her shitty grimacing ex-husband out of the water. i hate tom cruise but he was well utilized here as a naive turd.

barry lyndon, by the way, has a similar theme, and it successfully employs a similarly wooden male lead in a similar trajectory (though he's a criminal little shit). very close, these two.

i edited this a couple of, no, a few times, i hope it makes sense. gotta go crash.

I think it's one of his lesser films, but it's still really good. Nice atmosphere. I'd put it on par with The Shining, probably. Maybe a bit long, but eh.

It was never gonna work with Kubrick directing it. Whatever he might be good at, it's not subtle human interaction. His forte is quite one-dimensional, cartoonish characters (The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket). Someone like Steven Soderbergh or John Sayles would've been great but it was totally the wrong film for Kubrick to try and make. Although it might seem like an odd choice given what I just said, but Michael Mann would've likely done an amazing job of it, too. But definitely not Kubrick.

Barry Lyndon is great for that.

Yeah, Barry Lyndon is the closest to Eyes Wide Shut in lots of ways, but it still ups the cartoonish aspects of its characters. Unless that's what you meant.

major mixed feelings 'bout eyes wide shut. i don't like tom cruise ... and i've become very sick of nicole kidman. ugh.

movie itself was p. interesting though. i'm not that into films but generally kubrick's stuff gets + keeps my attention...

I do gotta say that Tom Cruise is just repugnant, horrid, idiotic and awful.

1999 was a good year for him. Eyes Wide Shut and Magnolia were both great.

I love Eyes Wide Shut. It's my favourite Kubrick.

i haven't seen this movie in awhile. but i love it.
i don't know why tom cruise gets a lot of hate.
he's a good actor.

they should remake this movie in 3D and market it towards children.
it's a win-win situation

agree with'ya. A contrary to trendy opinion, I think Tom Cruise is a good actor and just alright with me, even if he's not from this planet. It's just too convenient to hate on him, but I've liked him in a lot of movies and as with every other entertainer, I could give a fuck about his personal life, opinions and idiocracies. Simple as that... play some good roles in good movies, all I ask. Like him or not, he's a pretty talented motherfucker.

I liked him just fine in Legend, Interview w/ a Vampire, Born on fourth of July, Magnolia, Vanilla Sky, Valkyrie, Eye's wide shut, Tropic Thunder, Rainman, Few Good Men, Jerry Mcguire, and some others.....

Yeah, I think Tom Cruise has made some pretty cool movies, I like his acting even if it's borderline retarded at times "THEY'RE ALL DEAD CLAIRE, THEY'RE AAAAAAAAAAAALL DEAD!"

But yeah I like him, I just think Eyes Wide Shut is dumber than shit. But you all dig it, whatever, it's cool.
