Eyes Wide Shut — Another dramatic masterpiece by Stanley Kubrick — 10*/10

  • Overall: To most, it will look like an erotic drama when in reality it's a critique of the rampant conservative ideologies that everyone is running after.
  • Who is it for? Those ready to be catapulted, slowly. Everyone should at least give it a try.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Known actors: Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Sydney Pollack, Rade Serbedzija, Vinessa Shaw and Leelee Sobieski.
  • Setting: Opulent society.
  • Style: Dramatic and stark with a slow-developing intrigue and a simmering suspense.
  • Pacing: Slow. It feels like pulling out a strong and healthy tooth while under local anesthesia.
  • Intro: Very smooth and with a solid dose of reality within a posh environment.
  • Story: It's like going down the rabbit hole with Alice, things get crazier and crazier and only a good slap in the face can end it all. Reality can be scary to those who keep their eyes shut so tightly and Stanley Kubrick proves it here.
  • Ending: What better ending is there than 'fuck'? Genius.
  • Dialogs: Strong, realistic.
  • Characters: Deep and well thought out.
  • Acting: Superb. Perfect.
