    I don't know how a director whose central theme is the loss of humanity can be so uninterested in the minutiae of human speech and behavior.

    A riveting, thematically probing, richly atmospheric and just occasionally troublesome work, a deeply inquisitive consideration of the extent of trust and mutual knowledge possible between a man and a woman.

    I kept my eyes wide open all through Eyes Wide Shut and saw more control-freak unreality than visual genius around the edges of the cluttered compositions.

    Finally, however, it's just a cautionary tale about some very mild, old-fashioned erotic fantasies.

    Kubrick, exactly in character, has left us as the unchallengeable champion of the enigma.

    As it rambles on, it makes less and less of the material, rather than more.

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

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

    [O]ne of the best things about Eyes Wide Shut... is that it isn't a film of the 90s in most respects but something closer to what movies at their best used to be.

    Eyes Wide Shut is a masterful, cunning, challenging art movie!

    For most people, though, a single viewing will be more than enough.

    A masterpiece!

    Kubrick may have found, in this very adult and very human sexual awakening, a happy ending at last.

    Name user

    It's the most brilliant, most glamorous, yet subtlest movie about sexual desire and sexual jealousy.

    Name user

    Quite good in parts and always dazzling to the eye but a letdown all the same.

    Name user

    Challenging and richly rewarding!

    Name user

    Profound, intimate, provocative, richly ambiguous and spiked with sudden or sustained bursts of deeply knowing humor.

    For adult audiences, it creates a mesmerizing daydream of sexual fantasy.

    Eyes Wide Shut turns into a series of haphazard revelations that come to very little.

    It's a powerful movie without always, or often, being a very good one; watching it is a bit like being inside the twistings and conniptions of a control freak who longs to lose control, only to pull back tighter than ever.

    Name user

    Combines all the flaws that marred Kubrick's earlier work - including a glacial pace, emotional coldness and the sudden eruption of scenes that seem to belong in a different movie.

    Name user

    From the already famous 'mirror' love scene, played with a carnal sweetness that's rare in the brittle, cynical sexuality of film today, to the anger, fear and pain of their final confrontation, Cruise and Kidman are open and touching.

    Name user

    A precisely modulated and mostly mesmerizing 2 3/4-hour suspense movie.

    4/4

    Mr. Kubrick left one more brilliantly provocative tour de force as his epitaph.

    Name user

    Censored or not, Eyes Wide Shut remains an absorbing, haunting and ultimately profoundly moral work by a filmmaker working at the peak of his craft.

    Name user

    Disorienting but mesmerizing!

    Kidman is consistently excellent. This is the most powerful role she has taken on throughout a varied career.
