Ok, duh, that obviously fucking rocks.. but color me confused on one issue.. the soundtrack.. 1st used here? Or in the 'ritual' scene from "Eyes Wide Shut"?

David Mason said...

Yeah I wondered that too ? Probably on this first right ?

Sadly yes, never in the U.S. ...Americans detest Campari as much as they do gender-bentification, def an acquired taste.

meanwhile, my fave drink... Campari and vodka on ice.
...takes me back to many a Milanese night at Killer Plastico.
I'd recommend a few at your next International Pool Trash party.

The song is "Backward Priests" by Jocelyn Pook. It's a track of two Romanian priests chanting, run backwards. Kubrick was walking by his choreographer's rehearsal of the masked ball scene and the choreographer was playing this music. Kubrick decided to use it.

It seemed totally appropriate to the scene and I found it both dark and erotic there, but here it just gives me chills.

I love that the models are still into each other after revealing their mistaken genders.

How wonderful to come across people outside my circle of friends who have seen EYES WIDE SHUT, let alone like it.

I think it's a vastly underappreciated film, fascinating and brilliant.

Every time someone spills booze on me, I tear off my clothes, revealing that my gender is contrary to what I am presenting. I hate that this is never represented in TV ads in my home country, America.
