EYES WIDE SHUT
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's real-life status as a married couple (at the time) gives a unique frisson to Stanley Kubrick's final film, a chilling meditation on a couple in psychosexual crisis. Kidman's confession of a long-held sexual fantasy drives Cruise into a furtive, obsessive pursuit of extramarital thrills; events take a turn for the bizarre when the no-nonsense Manhattan doctor discovers that people he knows are involved in a dangerous demimonde of secret sex clubs. DIR/SCR/PROD Stanley Kubrick; SCR Frederic Raphael, from the novel "Traumnovelle" by Arthur Schnitzler. UK/U.S., 1999, color, 159 min. RATED R
