Great capsule review, rougerum. I too love the movie's dreamlike quality and how Kubrick makes you wonder what is going on in the head of the seemingly normal guy you pass on the street at night. You failed, however, to mention the cornerstone of the film: the outstanding performances of Nichol Kidman and Tom Cruise. The stars are so magnetic, and fit so perfectly in the world Kubrick wants to create. I believe this is truely one of the best performances of the two great actors respectively, and definately the best they have ever been on screen together.
