Eyes Wide Shut is a 1999 movie directed by Stanley Kubrick (A Clockwork Orange). Starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

Plot

A doctor (Tom Cruise) becomes obsessed with having a sexual encounter after his wife (Nicole Kidman) admits to having sexual fantasies about a man she met and chastising him for dishonesty in not admitting to his own fantasies. This sets him off into unfulfilled encounters with a dead patient’s daughter and a hooker. But when he visits a nightclub, where a pianist friend Nick Nightingale (Todd Field) is playing, he learns about a secret sexual group and decides to attend one of their congregations. However, he quickly learns he is in well over his head and finds he and his family are threatened. (Filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“You experience this 159-minute movie at his deliberate pace and from his oddly distanced perspective. The effect is disorienting but mesmerizing.” Desson Thomson: The Washington Post 

“Every shot and camera angle was selected with great care (…) For those who view cinema as something more substantive than an evening’s diversion, the release of ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is an event (…) Rating: ???½ (out of 4)” James Berardinelli: ReelViews

“A film that is better at mood than substance, that has its strongest hold on you when it’s making the least amount of sense.” Kenneth Turan: Los Angeles Times
