Saw it again last night for about the 3rd or 4th time and it still intrigues me, all of the unanswered questions and sexual innuendo. I really dig the chanting music during the orgy scene. Really gets under your skin in a cool way.

=============SPOILER=========================

I remember a review I read (I think it was Ebert) who said that he wished that during the hospital/morgue sequence where Dr. William goes to see Mandy's body, they should have showed Nightingales body on a stretcher or something like that to emphasize a more sinister conspiratory chain of events. I agree! I crack up at how often Dr. Bill whips out his wallet to assure people that he's a doctor so he must be okay.

I came into watching this movie actually not being a fan of Kubrick's movies. I didn't really care for 2001 or Clockwork Orange (hold the flames), though I saw them many years ago. But I liked EWS, a lot. It is a movie that does lend itself to repeated viewings. I will definitely be keeping this one in my collection.

SPOILER WARNING

as for some of the events in the movie out of the realm of all artistic encapsulations, tom cruise is such a wuss in this movie it just makes me sick. he can't even get it up for the hooker. and he only kissed some girl, and he's like "i understand if you want to divorce me cause i'm such a loser." i just don't get that. but don't say that in front of your girlfriend cause she'll probably want do dump you after that. hehehe
