so after a very strange experience in my Spanish 2 class in High School with a substitute teacher and Eyes Wide Shut playing (in English)...where I only got to see 90 minutes of the film, i finally...4 years later saw the film in it's entirity.
Somethings I must admit. I'm not much of Kubrick fan, and I've been vocal about it. I have to say I really, really enjoyed this film and it means that I'm going to have to give all his films another viewing (starting with A Clockwork Orange). I have only one problem with EWS and it's something that always bothers me in films. When some kind of external force acts on the characters (alcohol, drugs, i'm going to die in this plane/car crash) makes them tell their secrets & spill their guts. I think it's poor writing.
Obviously I'm referring to the pot scene in EWS. Cinematically though, the scene is perfect. Look for more of my thoughts on Kubrick films as I am about to give them additional viewings.
