So consider, as we settle in to live with this long, advisedly slow, mesmerizing film, how challenging and ambiguous its narrative strategy is. The source is an Arthur Schnitzler novella titled Traumnovelle (or "Dream Story"), and it's a moot question how much of Eyes Wide Shut itself is dream, from the blue shadows frosting the Harfords' bedroom to the backstage replica of New York's Greenwich Village that Kubrick built in England. Its major movement is an imaginative night-journey (even the daylight parts of it) taken by a man reeling from his wife's teasing confession of fantasized infidelity, and toward the end there is a token gesture of the couple waking to reality and, perhaps, a new, chastened maturity. Yet on some level--visually, psychologically, logically--every scene shimmers with unreality. Is everything in the movie a dream? And if so, who is dreaming it at any given moment, and why?
Don't settle for easy answers. Kubrick's ultimate odyssey beckons. And now the dream is yours. --Richard T. Jameson

Avoid- this is long,overly kinky, and easily exposes Cruise & Kidman's limited acting range. Cruise is a likable actor but in reality he is a high school dropout and portraying a... Read morePublished 8 days ago by Hans Christian Gruber

Blech. Not Kubrik's best. For having some of the best actors of the time, the acting was SUPER terrible. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

|will they show the sex scenes this time?||
This new version includes the unedited cut--no digital underwear in the orgy scene! It doesn't much change the experience of the film. As for your second question...well, you'd have to ask the MPAA.

Yes, WB made a mistake on the 2-disc edition. However it's for the better since the version I got in the newly remastered Stanley Kubrick box set contains the unrated cut only.
That's fine by me since if I ever wanted to see the other cut I can pop in the VHS tape that I used to record the movie... Read More

|Whoa, here is a thought.||
Interesting. I never actuallyhad any idea or thought about this. This movie is a puzzle indeed; and just like it states under the 'Product Description' it is possible this movie was never finished due to Kubrick's sudden death.
I don't hate this film, it wasn't too clear for me but I did enjoyed... Read More

|Blue Ray Censorship....||
"Adult" material is already out on Blu-ray & HD DVD. Both formats have several title available. Unfortunately you are misinformed. Your censoring comment is false.
