Description

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman star as a married couple entangled in an intricate web of jealousy and sexual obsession in Stanley Kubrick's final cinematic offering. At a Christmas party hosted by wealthy, unconventional Victor Ziegler (Sydney Pollack), provocative advances and innocent flirtations arouse suspicion as high-society physician Dr. William Harford (Cruise) and his sexy wife, Alice (Kidman) watch each other from a distance. Alone later, this seemingly perfect couple confront their intimate sexual fantasies--which don't include each other. Caught between reality and illusion, jealousy and obsession, William struggles with his inner urges. Will he act on his erotic fantasies or keep them hidden deep inside? Sometimes a man can see more clearly with his Eyes Wide Shut.

    I loved this movie. So interesting. Felt a bit like Rosemary’s baby. I wish we would have learned more about what those people were really all about.

    I love this movie, always have, it’s like driving down a slowly winding road with red headlights installed, spooky and good music is going, akin to tripping on mushrooms lightly or pulling on a joint, whilst a beautiful, strange woman sits partially nude in the passenger seat....passing suggestive eye contact with you, reaches out to your leg and releases a palm full of black widow spiders into your lap & then it all disappears, suddenly your surrounded by cloaked weirdos with masks who kick you out of the secret orgy you accidentally appeared at. You get home and your wife tells you a warning about not telling others of the secret place that you have been to earlier in the evening and she’s fully aware of it because she has been a prostitute for the gatherings for years secretly and she tells you she ate the dog with Marsala sauce for a fun morning. Yes ...is a long, slow paced movie. Yes it’s weird. Yes there’s tons of naked chicks getting railed by weirdos throughout. Yes it’s artsy, and yes it’s a look within our secret desires and the dangers of being reckless with stuff you shouldn’t be doing anyways. No it’s not transformers, or the new fastest N’ furious’oust car racing movie starring Billy Baldhead O’Dunkinshire and Ragu jr-hogkick mcturd Jr...this is a higher end movie that is subtle, takes a brain, and is a poor poor choice for the viewer who only can follow nonstop computer generated scenes and thumping bar fight scenes with a buddy jingling a set of dangling keys 🔑 in your peripheral vision in case you get bored during a car chase that’s not “furious enough” and would be good if you had a 30 pack to wash it down with
  • Waste of talent ie Cruise and Kidman

    Typical Kubrick rot– designed to shock the audience into believing it to be something exceptional – which it certainly is NOT! He manipulates the audience, indicative of his utter contempt for them.
  • Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman make good pair

    This is a talented stanley kubrick exotic film it's sexy, misunderstood and brilliantly well acted and directed exotic picture. What makes this film so tense and exotic is the wonderful performence by Nicole Kidman she is powerful and dazzling in every scene of the movie.
  • Great Movie, but not the directors actual vision

    I rented this even though I’d seen it MANY TIMES since it was released (never in the theaters near me though). Only ONCE was the Director’s Cut offered (can’t remember what streaming service offered it) so That’s What I Expected from iTunes. Sorry it was the same stupid version with the fake people in front of the sex scenes in the mansion. WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS ? I’m not a child nor easily offended by visual portrayals of SEX ACTS BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS. If I’d known that this iTunes version was the “Rated/Horribly Cut” version I wouldn’t have rented it —again.
  • Great movie — Censored

    Great movie, one of Kubrick’s very best, deserving 5 stars. Unfortunately, the iTunes version is the censored one, with digitally added silhouettes masking some scene elements (minus one star). To see the movie as the director intended, you will need one of the Blu-Ray releases.
  • Terrible like having an Divorce

    Starts out with hottie N in the raw and you think its going to get better but it does NOT and long arguments between Nicole and Cruise and stupid antics -- watch Basic Instinct were the real gets real
  • Bizarre and spiritually degrading

    I have no idea why this movie was made. It is awful, it is animalistic, and it is a lousy swan song for Stanley Kubrick.
  • Haunting and Moody

    This is a great movie. With a great moody atmosphere since it mainly takes place at night. It’s an adult movie Not for prudes that can’t handle sexuality.
