Reply to "MOVIES: What are you watching?"

I think that many of those who dislike Eyes Wide Shut miss the way Kubrick mocks Cruise and Kidman, while tricking them into playing themselves. At the end of the movie, they haven't learned a thing.
The cinematography and use of music are top-notch. Symbols abound, and riddles are presented that are not meant to be solved. Like Mulholland Drive, the movie has to be taken as a composite of impressions rather than a linear exposition.
