I like the film. I have to admit the first time I saw it I didn’t care for it much, but upon subsequent viewings I’ve come to really enjoy it.
It’s quite visually pleasing, the whole film is done with natural lighting and you can discern primary colors in nearly every shot. The music adds an interesting flavor to the many scenes throughout - I love how Kubrick film scores (…yeah, I admit that dissonant banging piano note’s a bit annoying) but all-in-all a beautifully rich and complex pallete is presented to the viewer with the storyline.
I’m sure if you’re opening this thread you’ve seen the film so I wont delve into the storyline. As for the essance of the movie, I think it can be summed up as a psychological escapade which displays how sex can cloud our judgement and drive our lives. Actually, I think the movie’s quite original in addressing that as I can’t really think of another movie that openly addresses that issue.
It’s not one of those movies where everything’s etched out for you, it’s more of a movie that you observe, absorb and build your own interpretation of.
Anyways, I think it’s a cool movie…what do y’all think about it?
