my first lars von trier. i really responded to the experimental style, it kind of made me think of the flare that a lot of french new wave films had, but processed through the lens of - well - melancholy.
Stanley Kubrick is another hit or miss director for me, and Eyes Wide Shut is a definite hit. The unique art direction and hypnotic performances of Tom Cruise and Nichole Kidman sucked me in. Will definitely watch again soon.
