Eyes Wide Shut was master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's final work. The film stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in a sexually charged examination of a crumbling marriage, and it received mixed reviews upon its release in 1999. Fifteen years later the film may be ripe for reassessment. Many of Kubrick's most renowned films, from 2001: A Space Odyssey to The Shining, only got their due years after their initial release.
Shotgun Cinema will present Eyes Wide Shut Thursday, December 4, at The Old Firehouse, 720 Mandeville Street. More info here.
