Very interesting that at the same time Kubrick was directing this film so was Roman Polanski directing \'The Ninth Gate\'. When asked of Roman what he thought about this he replied, "I guess our minds reside within the same cesspool." @EyesWideShut
Eyes Wide Shut is a 1999 erotic thrillerfilm based on Arthur Schnitzler's 1926 novellaTraumnovelle (Dream Story) transferred from early 20th century Vienna to 1990s New York. The film was directed, produced, and co-written by Stanley Kubrick. It was his last film, as he died four days after showing his final cut to Warner Bros. studios. The story, set in and around New York City, follows the sexually charged adventures of Dr. Bill Harford, who is shocked when his wife, Alice, reveals that she had contemplated an affair a year earlier. He embarks on a night-long adventure, during which he infiltrates a massive masked orgy of an unnamed secret society.
