Episode #7: Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

Eyes Wide Shut (1999) | Warner Bros.


This month on the show, we’re joined by poet, educator, and original BW/DR co-conspirator Elizabeth Cantwell to discuss Stanley Kubrick’s (now) beloved psychosexual Christmas thriller, Eyes Wide Shut. We chat about color and Christmas lights, shooting London for NYC (for Vienna), Tom Cruise’s dubious sex appeal, the complexities of marriage, whether the weed makes you aggressive, and much, much more.

The Bright Wall/Dark Room Podcast is co-hosted by Veronica Fitzpatrick and Chad Perman, and produced and edited by Eli Sands. Our theme music is composed by Chad Perman.
