    "Kubrick`s haunting final masterpiece. Vivid, brilliant, unforgettable" - Richard Schickel, TIME
    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 153 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    Stanley Kubrick`s daring last film is many things. It is a compelling psychosexual journey. A haunting dreamscape. A riveting tale of suspense. A major milestone in the careers of stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. And "a worthy final chapter to a great director`s career", (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times).

    Cruise plays Dr. Williams Harford, who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage - and may even ensnare him in a lurid murder mystery - after his wife`s (Kidman) admission of sexual longings.

    As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. Graceful tracking shots, controlled pacing, rich colours, startling images; bravura traits that make Kubrick a filmmaker for the ages are here to keep everyone`s eyes wide open.

    Wanting to see what all the fuss was about this movie i decided to rent the region2 version rather than buying.
    And what a delight to discover i`m glad i didn`t buy it,the movie is long and pointless,midway i lost interest and switched it off.It starts off reasonably well but develops to a snails pace,speed up some of the scenes and maybe it cold of been a hit,as for sound it`s dolby digital 5.1 not much happening here and for the picture a regular 1.33. Image is good sound average rent and forget about it.
