Stars:   2  / 10

One of the most over-rated films of the decade. Eyes Wide Shut is pointless, bourgeoisie soft-core porn that half-heartedly tries on "deep" and "bizarre", yet neither hat fits well at all.

A meandering and ineffective story, mediocre cinematography. stilted acting (Kidman's was even awful,) with an obnoxious, plonking piano score; take away the abundance of perky breasts and the lavish sets, and you've got 159 min. of  wealthy people doing nothing.

One star does go to the "Rainbow Costumes" scene, which was the only entertaining few minutes of this cinematic time-waster.

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Year: 1999
