A look back at EYES WIDE SHUT!
While I haven’t revisited the film since I saw it in a theater back in 1999, I got a chance to re-watch the late STANLEY KUBRICK’S last film, EYES WIDE SHUT, on Universal’s HD channel over the weekend. I had the same reaction to it as I did back then. It’s a fascinating movie that features some of the best work in Tom Cruise’s career. The psychosexual thriller, which also costars Cruise’s ex wife Nicole Kidman, is an absorbing and highly interesting piece of movie-making by one of Hollywood’s most gifted directors. I love the way it captured the underbelly of NYC at night through the eyes of Cruise’s doctor character. There’s something about it that’s really hypnotic.
Both Universal HD and the HDNETM are must-watch channels and I look forward to catching all their programming. Here’s a LINK to the upcoming schedules.
