A dreamscape sprung from Arthur Schnitzler and the sensual imaginations of America at Christmas time, pondering celebrity and fidelity, Stanley Kubrick’s final film is a moody, weird sexual odyssey from the ropelight-lit townhouses of New York to the multicolored twinkle of the rainbow’s end.

“‘Tis the season for Grinches and Gremlins, for leg lamps and Clark Griswold, and for the annual debate over the quality (or lack thereof) of LOVE, ACTUALLY – an argument that has grown more boring (and annoying) than the annual declaration that DIE HARD is actually a Christmas movie. But in this house, ’tis the season for Stanley Kubrick…EYES WIDE SHUT is the best Christmas movie of our lifetime.” —Britt Hayes, Slash
