Disturbing and completely inappropriate for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Eyes Wide Shut feels overblown, unresolved; in a better world it would not be the last work of an illustrious career. But this world is good enough to have given us all of Stanley Kubrick's films, and for that film lovers must give thanks.

It's empty of ideas, which is fine, but it's also empty of heat.

The price of Kubrick and Raphael's stubborn fidelity to the content if not the form of the novella is deadly.
July 14, 2007
In the end, it is unclear what Mr. Kubrick was attempting to convey with Eyes Wide Shut.

Finally, however, it's just a cautionary tale about some very mild, old-fashioned erotic fantasies.
January 1, 2000
[I]t's a tedious, preposterous story about how men use, misuse, and misunderstand female sexuality.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
January 1, 2000
Perverted, pretentious, numbing.

Kubrick, alas, should have quit while he was ahead.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2000
For most people, though, a single viewing will be more than enough.
January 1, 2000
The ambiguities recede and everything is precisely what it looks like.

In his last picture, Kubrick will have to get by with a shallow mastery of craft.
December 13, 2014
Long and dull, despite the sumptuous production design and light-shimmering photography (and the orgy).

Kubrick's legacy has finally come to a close, his adieu as predictably turgid as the rest of his oeuvre.

December 13, 2014
It's a movie you should see a second time to appreciate fully its themes of love and lust and trust and truth, but the idea of sitting through it again anytime soon may be about as alluring as eating a hairball.
January 1, 2000
To us, Eyes Wide Shut brought great disappointment.

January 1, 2000
The coda to Kubrick's career has some delightfully Kubrickian moments, but not enough to fill this shallow shell of a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 1, 2000
A failed effort from that great director, a movie that has lots of admirable technical elements and performances, yet not enough conviction to make it fully stir the loins or the brain.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
Combines all the flaws that marred Kubrick's earlier work - including a glacial pace, emotional coldness and the sudden eruption of scenes that seem to belong in a different movie.
January 1, 2000
Eyes Wide Shut turns into a series of haphazard revelations that come to very little.
Full Review | Original Score: C
