Too deep for the Brittney Spears crew,
This review is from: Eyes Wide Shut [DVD]  (DVD)
In these days of cutural nihilism, it is pleasing to see films being made that challenge and perplex. The French have been at it for God knows how long, but the pre-eminence of Hollywood in the anglophone World has condemned us to years of paucity.
This is a very enjoyable film. It has its flaws, but I award it a five star rating for the ambition that Kubrick shows in his vision and the excellent performance of the two leads. It is disappointing that the press chose to take much the same approach to the film as they did to Nicole Kidman's performance in the "Blue Room", leering and salivating over the brief moments of nudity. There is much more to the film than that.
I guarantee it'll make you think.
