Okay, I'm a huge fan of the man's work, even films that most people seemed to be disappointed by (ie Eyes Wide Shut). But....why the HELL are there no commentary tracks on ANY of the man's dvd releases? It's INFURIATING. Surely Malcolm McDowell or Ebert or somebody would have some things to say over A Clockwork Orange.

If I'm not mistaken, Kubrick was one of those directors like Spielberg and Allen who feel the movies should speak for themselves. He didn't want commentaries, and the studios are only respecting his wishes.

Hey, would you want someone trying to explain 2001?

I could use a little help on Eyes Wide Shut.

For that DVD, they just needed one audio track to be nothing but that one piano note, over and over and over again, for two hours straight.

Seriously, though, what's there not to understand with Eyes Wide Shut? It's obviously all about temptation.

Or sex.

Or fidelity.

Or dreaming.

Or something.

Hmm.

Did I mention Kidman's boobies?

Personally I think Eyes Wide Shut is more a showcase for Nicole's ass then her boobies. Very Happy

Loverly.

Does she have breasts? I wasn't aware that she had any...huh.

I'm probably just being a catty woman.

Oh, c'mon, let's face it-she's a skinny, skinny stick. And, very tall.

.... Silenced

She'd be even SEXIER with big boobies, but I still think she's very pretty.

Yeah, not so much...I don't think so. My opinion.

Clive Owen, now he's hot -but, we're talking about Stanley Kubrick & I don't think Clive Owen has been in a Kubrick film.(trying to keep some essence of the topic alive! heehee)

Attractive famous women...hmmm...Catherine Zeta-Jones, Eva Mendes, Natalie Portman, Goldie Hawn.

That's all I can think of right now. No, I don't want to sleep with them Laura.

Nicole Kidman was, is and will always be hot!

... but she needs to start eating again.

Yes, Slyder, I absolutely agree with the eating assesment.

I would probably think she would be prettier if she didn't look so painfully anorexic. But, seriously, the camera truly does add 10 pounds. I really shouldn't judge her.

Well, this is a critics site, so yeah, go ahead and judge.

I'll start: Kidman can't act her way out of a junior high production of "I Suck."

I saw that production, and she indeed couldn't act her way out of it.

Stayed on for the whole run.
