Best Kubrick film ever! I love the scene in the mansion. It's just brilliant. The way Kubrick changed the man women roles. The man is dead and he's a genius which would make him a dead genius!

an interesting review of Eyes Wide Shut

it is interesting, overall it was sort of ehhhhhhhhhhhh.

the dude reviewed it as a psychiatrist or sumthin, which is fine and worked excellent for his argument in most parts. what i don't understand is how he can say he was disappointed by FMJ. his page is called JUNG for christ sake, and he claims it had no psychological depth! it seems he himself has his eyes wide shut to the possibilities in FMJ. pun intended!

also, a minor point, he said the bit where Bill finds Alice asleep with the mask shows that she found it. when this is not exactly the case. the film enters total ambiguity at that point. there are other possible meanings for the mask on the bed, and Bill's reaction as well as Alice's can be interpreted differently depending on those meanings. either she found it, as he proposes, or sumone entered and left it there as a final warning to bill to shut the eff up about the orgy.

that's a minor point, this doctor dude reviewed it nicely. there's looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooots more still left to be said about the movie. does it hav to be written? if i was a better writer i'd fill up a few thousand pages with it. it just feels that u sell urself short when u write a meaning down. u lose a lot.

Maybe Alice did find it, but she couldn't know the meaning and origin of the mask - still, the fact that she found it might be a warning itself. On the other hand, a possibility for them to talk about what happened and bond. Bill brought the mask from that orgy - he went on the orgy, but Alice dreamed about it. Also, she spoke about having desire for other men. They didn't DO anything, but they have fantasies and avoiding their existancemakes them slowly moving away from each other and theirselves.

yeah, bill didn't bring the mask back home because it would've been in the bag when he returned it.

at the shop he thought he had either forgotten it in the cab, or left it at the mansion.

I recall seeing it on City TV (but I like to call it Shitty TV, ho ho) and flipping the channel immediately, telling the person I was with "oh, they just edited shit out anyway. fuck this."

no, maybe i should a worded what i ment better cinephile, i'm not just talking about the fact they didn't censor for tv content, i'm also saying they played the INTERNATIONAL VERSION of the film!  it was cool (and yes there is the factor of me being a pervert) to not see the superimposed people in the orgy sequence.

yeah, they dont really bother me.  if i had to chose between the version i have now or the international one, of course i would choose the internatonal one, but it doesnt bother me so much.  to tell you the truth i didnt even notice them the first few times i saw the picture...
