NEW BOOK: Eyes Wide Shut: Stanley Kubrick and the Making of His Final Film Paperback – 25 Jul 2019

Twenty years since its release, Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut remains a complex, visually arresting film about domesticity, sexual disturbance, and dreams. It was on the director's mind for some 50 years before he finally put it into production. Using the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts, London, and interviews with participants in the production, the authors create an archeology of the film that traces the progress of the film from its origins to its completion, reception, and afterlife. The book is also an appreciation of this enigmatic work and its equally enigmatic creator.

Rade Šerbedžija talks about Stanley Kubrick and 'Eyes Wide Shut'

This is an interview with Rade Šerbedžija who played Milich in 'Eyes Wide Shut'. It's an excerpt from a longer interview, I only used part when he talks about Kubrick and EWS.

This film is amazing. It grows on me more and more.

I don't think it's a case of the Emporer's New clothes either. This is a very rich film, with hidden layers.
