Eyes Wide Shut Reviews
September 10, 2002
There's no doubt that the late Stanley Kubrick was one of the most brilliant filmmakers of the century. Even when you're put off by how cold and deliberate his films can be, you still can't help but be amazed by the artistry.

when its moments of truth arrive they're as bracing as if you'd stepped out of a steaming shower straight into a winter storm. The shocks go straight to the heart.

Well, I'll be damned. A sex movie this summer for grown-ups.

Ranks with Kubrick's very best. He touches on a very universal theme and does it with such precision that forces you to keep eyes wide open.

The interest in "Eyes Wide Shut," then, should be less in its supposed subject matter than in Kubrick's masterful filmmaking.

Qualquer filme capaz de despertar tantas indagações já vale uma conferida.

[Kubrick's] final, hypnotic, meticulously crafted film... hangs on something as commonplace as a husband's confession of his strange desires.

It's one of the few true masterpieces of the 90's, even if it took me a third viewing to realize just how phenomenal it was.

Eyes Wide Shut...is a fitting coda to a career that engaged and puzzled always and simultaneously.

It's fitting that Kubrick go out in style, with an uneasy film like Eyes Wide Shut, one that had critics divided and audiences baffled.

an utterly absorbing nightmare of a film, a precise director's evocation of a waking dream, punctuated with uncharacteristic humanity and a surprisingly optimistic ending.

s this Kubrick's best work? I don't think so, but it is certainly in keeping with his tradition of creating enigmatic films with emotionally isolated characters.

To us, Eyes Wide Shut brought great disappointment.
