One of the greatest unfinished movies in the history of cinema.
| Original Score: 10/10
And you can't help thinking that, somewhere beyond the grave, the most cerebral of celebrity filmmakers is enjoying the most satisfying of last laughs
| Original Score: 4/4
Disturbing and completely inappropriate for kids.
| Original Score: 2/5
Slow, repetitious and conventional, Kubrick's last film has some good moments but does not live up to the hype and occupies a mid-level position in an otherwise brilliant career.
| Original Score: B-
Kubrick's final film is a virtuoso study of looking and imagining, one that implicates the audience in the act of coveting.
| Original Score: 80/100
Misunderstood as a psychosexual thriller, Stanley Kubrick's final film is actually more of an acidic comedy about how Tom Cruise fails to get laid.
As you'd expect from Kubrick, this is a cerebral film that works on several levels--the illusory, the real, the ethereal and everything that falls in between.
| Original Score: B+
An unqualified masterpiece from a master whose death marked the end of an era.
Like all Kubrick's films, this one will take time, and multiple viewings, to yield up its full meaning and resonance.
| Original Score: 5/5
In the end, it is unclear what Mr. Kubrick was attempting to convey with Eyes Wide Shut.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
I don't know how a director whose central theme is the loss of humanity can be so uninterested in the minutiae of human speech and behavior.
A riveting, thematically probing, richly atmospheric and just occasionally troublesome work, a deeply inquisitive consideration of the extent of trust and mutual knowledge possible between a man and a woman.
I kept my eyes wide open all through Eyes Wide Shut and saw more control-freak unreality than visual genius around the edges of the cluttered compositions.
Finally, however, it's just a cautionary tale about some very mild, old-fashioned erotic fantasies.
What's the biggest surprise of Eyes Wide Shut? It would be that Kubrick has nearly made a David Lynch movie.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Kubrick, exactly in character, has left us as the unchallengeable champion of the enigma.
Moviegoers expecting typically crowd-pleasing Tom Cruise fare may come away disappointed, but fans of Kubrick's unique style will, over time, find plenty to admire.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's the last work we'll ever see by a filmmaker who gave us so much in the dozen films he created over nearly five decades of filmmaking.
I found it brilliantly executed and haunting, like most of Kubrick's work.
| Original Score: B+
As it rambles on, it makes less and less of the material, rather than more.
