Funny / Eyes Wide Shut

  • "This pot is making you aggressive."
  • Kubrick had a real thing for hyper-literal humour. In the otherwise very serious talk with Victor:
    Bill: Have you seen this?
    (gives Victor the obituary notice; he scans over it for a moment, folds it up, then hands it back)
    Victor: Yes I have.
  • The scene with Mr. Milich (the foreign costume shop owner) is legitimately funny.
  • The final lines. The cinematic testament of Kubrick — one of the most scrutinized artists of all time — simply states that people need to get laid more.
    Alice: I do love you and you know there is something very important we need to do as soon as possible.
    Bill: What's that?
    Alice: Fuck.
