The best part of this book centers on the making of "Eyes Wide Shut." Beyond any doubt, it is the steamiest, most erotic writing I have enountered about a major Hollywood star. My glasses are still steamed over.
You will never be sorry you read this book.
This biography, painstakingly researched and meticulously detailed, is a work of many textures and is an enjoyable as it is thorough.
But, hey, wait until you come to Chapter Seven - "The Making of Eyes Wide Shut" -- the film she and then-husband Tom Cruise made with the late, great Stanley Kubrick.
A longtime admirer of Kubrick's work, I learned some hand-wringing details about ol' Stanley such as whether or not the myths surrounding him and his allegedly bizarre work habits were true or not.
And SEX, oh yes. Nicole Kidman and sex. We see how Kubrick manipulated, managed, whatever, Ms. Kidman's 'love' scenes in Eyes Wide Shut. and how those scenes affected her marriage with the oh-so-nearby Mr. Cruise. This chapter has some of the 'hottest' descriptions I've seen in a serious, almost scholarly, biography. The pages were singed on the ends.
It's here where the reader gets hooked and then digs in for the rest of the ride, particularly after reading the interview with the 'sailor' who did the 'love' scenes with our star.
You might like this book if you are just hoping to learn a little more on Kidman's life, but expect to overlook some major shortcomings in the writer.
