Screenplay Quickie - Eyes Wide Shut

Director Stanley Kubrick's last silver-screen odyssey dishes up a chillingly distant examination of carnal desire and obsession. A rhubarb about fidelity with his wife, Alice (Nicole Kidman), sends Dr. Bill Hartford (Tom Cruise) reeling into the Manhattan night. He soon finds himself in a surreal succession of sexually charged encounters, capped off by a clandestine visit to an upper-crust orgy where what he witnesses could get him snuffed.

This film is totally under-rated. Kubrick died making it, Cruise and Kidman split up making it. Many have called it a 'flawed masterpiece', but the flaw is that critics don't realise it's a true story - in more ways than one. So many critics use the same phrase when they talk about this film - 'flawed masterpiece' - they're obviously all hypnotised.
The screenplay tells the tale - the film is unfinished.
