Crazy for Kubrick

When: Sat., July 18 2015

Say what you will about the man, no one has ever accused Stanley Kubrick of being tame. His raunchiest film happened to be his last with Eyes Wide Shut. The 1999 erotic drama was everything Kubrick loved. The film is stunning and shocking, like most of Kubrick’s triumphs. Like other Kubrick projects too, Eyes Wide Shut butchers the plot and theme of a well-received novel. Just talk to Stephen King or the late Anthony Burgess to see how they feel about Kubrick’s adaptations. Regardless, the film polarized a nation in 1990s and is showing tonight to divide crowds once more. It starts at 8:55 p.m. in the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Cinemateque. Tickets are $9. (Rees)
