Quote from: Derek237I really loved the acting, too. Not their best performances but still great. The best scene is their argument in the bedroom, which seems to last like 10 minutes. Great stuff.
Quote from: SoNowThenWanna hear something absolutely evil? My directing teacher in film school said "Eyes Wide Shut was terrible. It's probably the reason Kubrick died". .
Quote from: themodernage02the piano 'theme' from that movie is some of the creepiest and most suspense building music ive ever heard. for some reason those few notes really affect me.
Quote from: cbrad4dnicole kidman continues to astound me with each viewing of this movie. some of the stuff she does...like okay, during the bedroom scene when they are arguing and whatnot and the phone rings for tommy telling him that guy just died, look at her reaction shot right after it- its like she's stunned but not really. I dunno, i'm not articulating this very well but its really great stuff. also, love the shot of her in the mirror during the first sex scene when she takes off her glasses.
Quote from: KeenerI finally got around to watching the copy of Eyes Wide Shut I downloaded. I loved it ! I went in expecting a dissapointing last film from one of my favorite directors which would be an over-artsy autopsy of sexuality but I was rather pleased to see it as a semi-mainstream but brilliant thriller revolving around a deadly cult of sex fiends. It was a mesmerizing concept and had its share of genuine creepiness and late night fun. On one hand, I was sad to see Kubrick do away with his trademark white sets and backgrounds but the gold and green gloom of the film sets the mood and justifies the absence of the white element. When I get a job, The Stanley Kubrick Collection DVD box set is a high priority for me. What a great guy. RIP.
