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.

Eyes Wide Shut (starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman) is a movie that brilliantly shows how even the wealthiest couples sometimes go through experiences that test their marriage but can eventually make it stronger. Eyes Wide Shut also communicates many other messages in the movie that one can be the judge of. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman play Bill and Alice Hartford. They are an affluent couple that live in Manhattan and are invited to a party hosted by a prosperous lawyer named Victor Ziegler. Viewers are given obvious reason to believe that the party is also going to feature other people who are also doing well in life on a professional/career scale. Anyhow, the character of Bill Hartford becomes concerned when Alice Hartford confesses to have previously fantasized about a naval officer that she saw while they were dining out one night. Her confession is one of the catalysts that indirectly influence him to venture out on his own among events involving him going to a controversial orgy party told to him by an old friend. However, the party is also highly exclusive because it is also a gathering where many powerful and well-known people are going to be at. There is much more to this classic movie for those who are fine with watching suspenseful movies and/or are familiar with either Tom Cruise and/or Nicole Kidman.

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.

I don't think it's possible to truly explain Eyes Wide Shut to anyone who hasn't seen it. For some, it will be too darn weird, far too lengthy, and too abstract and open-ended to be enjoyable. Others, however, will find themselves as fascinated as I was while watching this extraordinary film, especially after it transforms itself into something totally unexpected about midway through. There is a sort of surreal atmosphere around everything that happens here, although I must say I sensed no dreamlike qualities to any parts of it. I really didn't know what to expect going in - besides a bunch of nudity and the whole erotic Cruise-Kidman relationship - but that was a good thing (especially since the movie isn't really about those things). Eyes Wide Shut is so unusual that it's probably better for the viewer to go in with no expectations whatsoever.

I came to this film for Nicole Kidman, just as many probably came to it for Cruise. It's really a Tom Cruise feature, I have to say, with Kidman scoring a lot less screen time than I expected. Now, I love Nicole Kidman, and I was mesmerized by this entire movie, but I don't think this was one of Kidman's better performances. Maybe it's just the fact that racy language coming out of her mouth just doesn't sit right with me, but I was definitely uncomfortable watching Kidman work her way through the more emotional scenes (which seemed a little overdramatic). Cruise, for his part, is great, and the whole supporting cast (including Leelee Sobieski in a small but scintillating role) is excellent.

Bill and Alice Harford have a complex relationship. Following a strange party which finds them each flirting with other people, Alice starts a discussion that ends with her recounting her fantasies about another man.
