Maestro Stanley Kubrick's last movie got a mixed response, I think. At least my opinions were mixed. The movie was disturbing, both in good and bad. There was something haunting about it. Lots of it had to do with the music, especially Ligeti's "Musica Ricercata". Jocelyn Pook's work is also excellent, her "Masked Ball" is a top class atmospheric piece. Classical pieces are complemented with jazz selections and Chris Isaak. Eyes Wide Shut is a remarkable example of high quality movie soundtrack. *****

Six Months Later:
Still a very good example of proper soundtrack work. Well, perhaps I'll remove one star. It's not that perfect... ****

I don' t really have comments, just a question: I'm music student and I'm going to write a thesis about Ligeti's Musica Ricercata and it's influence on performer and audience.
A part of it will be about the effect in Eyes wide shut.
Do you have any more information about that subject?
