40/40 Day 29 Report

Eyes Wide Shut is definitely another acquired taste.  It's strange, creepy and mysterious. It has an interesting color palette, is beautifully shot, and has a unique score that heightens the tension throughout the film. I also think there was a certain brilliance in casting - from the real husband and wife team of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, to his use of talented actor/directors Sydney Pollack and Todd Field. 


While not the kind of movie you can just throw in and watch at any time, Eyes Wide Shut is interesting to revisit from time to time. For such an intimate film, I think it plays very well on the big screen, and I'm glad to have programmed it for our penultimate film in the 40 Years, 40 Movies series.

On Deck: The closing night of the series brings us a double dose of David Lynch: Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.
