I couldn't pretend if I tried. All the men at the party are costumed and wear masks while the women are all young and beautiful. Harford manages to find an appropriate costume and heads out to the party. When in reality it doesn't matter what I say. William Harford es un respetable médico neoyorquino cuya vida parece ir muy bien: está casado con una preciosa mujer, tiene una hija y tiene un trabajo que le gusta. » I admire the work of Stanley Kubrick very much. A fine conclusion to an excellent career.
Pero, al dÃa siguiente de asistir a una fiesta, su esposa Alice le habla de unas fantasÃas erÃ³ticas y de cÃ³mo estuvo a punto de dejarlo por un desconocido. Kubrick was a master director, and he uses long shots and dissolves to great effect. Reviewed by Holden-17 9 There is no denying that Stanley Kubrick is one of the greatest filmmakers to ever live. And finally, the unionized orgy party, that I find hard to believe doesn't really exist. This is not a movie about being sexy and naked -- it's a movie about how flesh is just another part of being human, so what is all the fuss about? It's possible to watch this film and actually think about it for hours afterward. And that's when it happened.
To be honest with you, I didn't buy it the first time I saw it. More than a visceral painted picture or a haunting melody. After his wife, Alice, tells him about her sexual fantasies, William Harford sets out for a night of sexual adventure. All in all, definitely worth seeing for the un-uptight. It's Cruise at his finest. There is plenty of naked flesh, don't get me wrong, but in exactly the opposite way that the ads make it appear. Cruise and Kidman are at their best, and the supporting cast is also strong.
A partir de entonces un mundo dominado por el sexo y el erotismo se abre ante él. Maybe only guys like Kubrick or Cruise will ever really know if they do or not. He may not have made many films, but every single one of them is a masterpiece. Life experience and a philosophical mind is also required to fully understand and enjoy this film. I became infected by his genius and captivated by Cruise's portrayal.
All his films remain in my mind with a vitality far beyond most of the other work I see, even though the details of the films are often boring or inscrutable. The sets are an integral part of the movie; they breathe and glow and live. After his wife, Alice, tells him about her sexual fantasies, William Harford sets out for a night of sexual adventure. Abrumado por esta confesión, acaba entrando en un local, donde un antiguo compañero le habla de una congregación secreta dedicada al hedonismo y al placer sin límites. It has no explosions, no running, shouting, or a single gunshot. His realization and his detail.
The seriousness of the situation fades away with a stern smile as the plot thickens. It's hard to pick my favorite scene in the movie. After several less than successful encounters, he meets an old friend, Nick Nightingale - now a musician - who tells him of strange sex parties when he is required to play the piano blindfolded. The camera work is haunting and the soundtrack gives me chills. He does this through all aspects of the film. What it has are long scenes in which characters talk to one another. To say the least it is one of those movies you could watch over and over again.
The tension in the plot and the issues that the film discusses aren't telegraphed to the audience, they're hinted at in the dialog. From the piano bar to the costume shop. Should have digitally added some gunfights. I thought it was good, but not great. It's Kubrick's magic work with the camera that holds the film together.
After several less than successful encounters, he meets an old friend, Nick Nightingale - now a musician - who tells him of strange sex parties when he is required to play the piano blindfolded. I particularly love the opening party scene. Harford manages to find an appropriate costume and heads out to the party. After several less than successful encounters, he meets an old friend, Nick Nightingale - now a musician - who tells him of strange sex parties when he is required to play the piano blindfolded. Cruise being assaulted on the street being so eloquently called a fag. It's a masterpiece that should be treasured.
Once there, however, he is warned by someone who recognizes him, despite the mask, that he is in great danger. This sets him off into unfulfilled encounters with a dead patient's daughter and a hooker. The problem is that the film is marketed as having white-hot sex scenes and plenty of gratuitous nudity, while it has neither. Never experience a film that 6 years after it's release, I still can not forget. Synopsis A New York City doctor, who is married to an art curator, pushes himself on a harrowing and dangerous night-long odyssey of sexual and moral discovery after his wife admits that she once almost cheated on him.
