Format: DVD
Stanley Kubrick's final and most complicated masterpiece opened to extreme disappointment among reviewers from all over. Critical disappointment with the film was almost unanimous. They claimed that Kubrick was "out of touch with today's jaded sensibilities". However, as has been the case with almost every Kubrick film ever released, the critics, at first, could only see what was not there. The film was, and continues to be, completely and utterly misinterpreted by both the critical and the public eye.
The main themes in Eyes Wide Shut are not those of sex and marriage - now, certainly, the story that is told by the actors alone echoes of these subjects. However, what the actors are doing onscreen more often than not was meant by Kubrick to take second place to the imagery used in the film. And the themes portrayed by the imagery are most certainly not that which mainstream reviews have let on.
So what exactly is Eyes Wide Shut about, then? Not sex. That much should be obvious from the re-appearance of the film's title after the short shot of Nicole Kidman's buttocks (telling us that we're not really seeing what we're seeing). Eyes Wide Shut is about the wealth and power of society - about the upper class. It's about how the elite men in this world manipulate their inferiors and treat them like mere possessions. It is about the mistreatment of women and the lower class, and the source of that mistreatment.
From a single viewing of Eyes Wide Shut one may assume that Nicole Kidman's character has some "power" in her relationship with her husband, that she has some other meaning to him and his acquaintances than an object - a possession. One will see, however, after analyzing the film carefully, that she has no power.

Format: Blu-ray
Not to suggest that you can expect to see Kubrick's last film in a stunning new light on Blu-Ray, and although like any Blu-Ray it is certainly beautiful, by comparison to some other Blu-Rays, it is not an exceptional transfer. I've had a Hitachi 1080i plasma on my wall for about a year now and I finally got a Playstation 3 so I can buy and enjoy Blu-Rays. Unlike the switch from video to DVD, the upgrade to Blu-Ray doesn't necessarily mean I will have to start my movie collection all over again as I can play all of my DVDs as well, but I was prompted to buy Eyes Wide Shut (a DVD I do own) when I realized it was the unrated version only previously available in Europe. I thought that might mean it would be closer to what Kubrick intended Eyes Wide Shut to be, but the additional footage is really just some extra sexual content. I should clarify that it isn't really extra footage at all, it's just that a bunch of robed figures blocking our view from some naughty behavior in the American release were actually removed in this version so you can see the naughty behavior. I didn't even realize the figures were there and now I have to get my arms around the reasons why they were included to begin with. I don't know, perhaps if Mike Huckabee becomes president those mysterious robed figures will make a dramatic comeback. That might verify my suspicions.

Nevertheless, I'm not convinced this is what Kubrick intended Eyes Wide Shut to be, but contemplating what he did intend is fascinating to me. I actually consider Kubrick among my favorite directors, so this fascination is probably not as applicable to non-fans. Of his films, Eyes Wide Shut is, along with Barry Lyndon, his least appreciated and most criticized, although not by me. Eyes Wide Shut is actually one of my favorite Kubrick films.

Format: DVD
The final film from the master Kubrick. An eerie detached exploration of erotic desire & obsession. The story an argument on fidelity with wife sends a doctor in NYC to check out the seedy Manhatten underground streets & into a variety of sexual encounters and situations. Tom Cruise plays the sexual frustrated know it all attitude doctor and I have to say he is not one of my favorites but he does pull this off quite well. Nicole Kidman plays his curious wife. He ends up at an exclusive secret upper-class orgy which could lead to dangerous consequences. The cinematography is dark and creepy in usual Kubrick fashion. The acting is incredible & the storyline is unique. The movie touches on the dark side of sexual desires of one man who thought he knew it all but realized his eyes were wide shut. One of my favorite Kubrick films worth viewing.

Stanley Kubrick had by then become a recluse in the twilight years of his life that he dedicated to filming this movie. The timing was impeccable as Kubrick had then died shortly after completing this film leaving no unfinished bits. As perhaps a last gift, Kubrick gives us a final completed film which rounds of his stellar resume.

The movie opens as we are let into the private lives of a young New York doctor; a general practitioner named Bill Harford who lives with his wife Alice. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

After a series of life's mundane events which, in the context of living a life and having to one day die, even can seem overwhelming, Bill Harford is driven into the night attempting to assuage the onslaught of the latest demons which life had to offer him, like it seems to offer the rest of us. These demons include his wife admitting that she had fantasies of sleeping with another man.

He attempts to meet one of the women who talked with him the previous night of the party. In order to compensate for his wife's admitted psychic infidelity, he attempts to have an affair, but a phone call from his wife interrupts this. He also learns that the woman he was looking for who was not home had contracted AIDS.
On another night, he ducks into a restaurant and learns from reading a newspaper that his old high school friend and medical school colleague and then dropout was playing at a nearby jazz piano bar.

Meeting his friend, Nick Nightingale, he finds out from Nick about a party in the Hamptons, and it really looks like the Hamptons, but this being a Kubrick movie was inevitably, invariably filmed in England.
