Eyes Wide Shut

Director: Stanley Kubrick Cast: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Sydney Pollack


View All Available Formats & Editions


The final work of legendary director Stanley Kubrick, who died within a week of completing the edit, stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, at the time Hollywood's most bankable celebrity couple, and was shot on a open-ended schedule (finally totaling over 400 days), with closed sets in London standing in for New York City. Cruise and Kidman play William and Alice Harford, a physician and a gallery manager who are wealthy, successful, and travel in a sophisticated social circle; however, a certain amount of decadence crosses their paths on occasion, and a visit to a formal-dress party leads them into sexual temptation when William is drafted into helping a beautiful girl who has overdosed on drugs while Alice is charmed by a man bent on seduction. While neither William and Alice act on their adulterous impulses, once the issue has been brought into the open, it begins a dangerous season of erotic gamesmanship for the couple, with William in particular openly confronting his desire for new sexual experiences. What didn't make the final cut of Eyes Wide Shut may have been as fascinating as what finally appeared on screen: Harvey Keitel was replaced almost immediately by Sydney Pollack, while Jennifer Jason Leigh was replaced by Marie Richardson after she had shot all her scenes and left town.

Stanley Kubrick is arguably the best filmaker. Many people liked this last movie, and some didn't. It was nominated for an oscar, a lot of people don't think it should be, only a select few true critics like the movie as much as me. The movie however is one of Kubricks best, it blends an amazing script with an even better cast, and Kubrick's directing is at it's best. This movie reminds me of Kubrick's other masterpeices Dr. Strangelove, 2001, A Clockwork Orange, and his early Lolita. Kubrick did an excellent job, this movie deserved the 1999 oscar for diricting, picture still goes to American Beauty.

Each time I view this film I perceive another layer of complexity. This is a film that will "grow on you"--if you give it a chance.

To tell the truth about anything slightly uncomfortable, Kubrick always had to turn to to an analogy or a fictional form. What he shows in this movie is the dirty truth of the underside of humanity that attempts to rule any and all while remaining right in front of us but clearly invisible to all but the initiated or someone with a trained eye for the power and lust of evil even when disguised as the most wealthy, powerful and prominent people. No wonder he "died suddenly" before it was finished. It makes you wonder what was so overpowering in the 25 minutes of the movie he made that caused the studio to cut those scenes from ever being released.

I never really understood this movie, until I got married. Now that I am married this film makes perfect sense to me. It is the story of doubt. In the Bible Jesus talks about having faith the size of a mustard seed. In this movie Stanly Kubrick illustrates how doubt of any size can enter and monopolize a man soul. Truly a remarkable film! (Did not understand it at all until I got married.)
