Eight Minute Video Explores The Immersive Quality Of Kubrick's EYES WIDE SHUT

A new video essay looks at the immersive power of Kubrick's final masterpiece.







Critics of Stanley Kubrick often label his work as cold and impenetrable. That's certainly not an accusation that can be levelled at his final masterpiece, Eyes Wide Shut. Few films suck us in and force us to view their narrative through the eyes of their protagonists quite like the film Kubrick completed mere days before his death.

In this video essay, Nerdwriter1 looks at this immersive quality, comparing the experience of watching Kubrick's film to that of playing a video game.
