Eyes Wide Shut

Stanley Kubrick series. "Kubrick's final film is unique in his oeuvre for concluding on a note of apparent affirmation." - Film Comment

“As an epilogue to the career of Stanley Kubrick who died within days of delivering the finished film, Eyes Wide Shut is just about perfect in that it is unmistakably, definitely Kubrickian.  A psychological probing of marriage, desire, jealousy and sexual paranoia. This is about the reality of sexual love versus its illusions.

“William Harford (Cruise), is a successful Manhattan doctor. Wife Alice (Kidman) ran an art gallery that went broke, leaving her too much time to get tipsy at parties. She picks a fight with her husband, dropping a bombshell that rattles his security and sends him off into the night. In his subsequent dreamlike odyssey, he encounters things that persuade him that everyone is having it off except him, while he's haunted by graphic images of his wife in flagrante.

“Cruise, who is in virtually every scene, lends the film an essential humanity. His palpably wounded male pride, pain and vulnerable bewilderment keep you connected to what is otherwise, a cold, humourless, despairingly cynical observation of human relationships.
