Secrets and Spies

The Betrayal of Stanley Kubrick

Speaking of Kubrick's on-set behavior, Raphael writes, "He was a huntsman who watched, and waited, but could never say for what exactly." The same could be said of his fans. It's a tacit tribute to Kubrick's lifelong desire to intrigue the public that so many people felt cheated, rather than enticed, by Walker's premature review of the film. The suspense may have been killing us, but in a neoclassical style of delayed gratification that may go out with the 20th century. Had Kubrick succeeded in keeping Eyes Wide Shut a secret till the very end, it would have been his last magic act.
