Screen/Society--"Eyes Wide Shut" (1999) | Stanley Kubrick
"Eyes Wide Shut" (Stanley Kubrick, 1999, 159 min, UK/USA, Color, DCP)
Then-couple Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman star as a New York doctor and art dealer whose stoned admissions of erotic longings throw their marriage into doubt - and lead Cruise to the center of a shadowy sex cult populated by a corrupt and decadent social elite. Twenty years on, Kubrick's final masterpiece is timelier than ever.
"A spellbinder: provocatively conceived, gorgeously shot and masterfully executed." -- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Baffling critics and audiences in 1999, Eyes Wide Shut has become a defining movie of the Jeffrey Epstein era." -- Andrew Whalen, Newsweek
