OK, one for a movie I unfortunately had to endure last night:
Eyes Wide Shut: Tom and Nicole repeat every question they’re asked, thus doubling the length of a movie in which there is a lot of talking about fucking, but hardly any really takes place.
Mmmmm not so short and definately not very good, looking at it now
But: what the HELL was Stanley thinking ??
The movie is beautiful in terms of the pictures and shots (isn’t that the same, come to think of it), but the story is R-E-A-L-L-Y lame… IMHO, of course.
This being the last movie of a genius so great, well, it’s seems to be ironic at least.
God, no-one knows how much I love “Full Metal Jacket”… one of my favourite flicks of ALL TIME. Don’t get me started on the other gems… This guy basically deserved a better goodbye, or at least a chance to redeem himself with a DECENT movie.
But I suppose all this belongs in a threat of its own. I’m kinda sad now, just like last night exiting the cinema. The whole experience gave me a sense of unfulfillment.
You weren’t done yet, mr. Kubrick. Not by a long shot. You will be missed.
