"Eyes Wide Shut", Paperback
2.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Michel Chion's study of this film makes the case that it is one of Kubrick's masterpieces and a fitting testament.

To appreciate this, though it is necessary to look at what happens on the screen without bringing preconceptions to bear.

Review by

Chion always finds novel and interesting ways in which he can approach a film (read also his superb analysis of Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line) that strike you as logical and simple, but that somehow it managed to elude every viewer and critic. If you have any doubts about Eyes Wide Shut’s qualities, better read this.
