This one’s special.
Eyes Wide Shut is my go-to Christmas movie. It evokes a universe rich in lust, luxury, jealousy and danger, inside the City, thus becoming a deranged personal fantasy of how I wished my life would turn out - a stroll on a line between the good and the bad (but cowardly comfortably, never too good or bad).
Because for all it’s menace, at all times we are safe inside this universe, a feeling that probably comes from the sensation that no bad thing can ever happen to the 1%, that the characters’ naturally belong to. Especially during Christmas.
This one’s special. The good doctor’s character is sickeningly relatable.
I started this blog with a post referencing Eyes Wide Shut.
