An excellent looking steelbook. I love the simplicity of the front design. Too bad they did not release this Kubrick collection in North America. I had to pay a bit more than what it's truly worth. With that being said, it's still a worthy entry in my collection, one worth the extra money I paid for.

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'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.

I'm giving this movie only one star and it pains me to do that. This movie was so awful and boring I could not stick with it. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's acting are very stiff and forced and that stupid one-tone-key piano playing throught out the movie just drove me crazy. Before the movie was released all any entertainment magazines and/or shows talked about its strong sexual conent. There wasn't a good enough story so the director through in a lot of sex. It sounds just like "Showgirls" to be. All that hype and then nothing.

Let me first state that I highly enjoy movies with an intellectual stimulus and that actually make you think beyond the roll of the credits.
This is not what this movie is.
What it is, is garbage. There's no intellectual quest, emotional investment, or discovery of character. It's an excuse to produce a film of nothing but people walking around naked in highly-unbelievable sadomasochitic bliss. If this version is Kubrick's actual intent, then shame on him. Tom Cruise is at his worst. There's nothing enjoyable or even redeemable about his character. He's just trite and boring. Kidman fares somewhat better, given the material. Ironic that after their divorce, her movies get better (bordering on brilliance) and his get worse.
"The difference between pornography and erotica is lighting," said Gloria Leonard. This movie is neither. It's lining for the litter box.

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.
