Now Watching: Eyes Wide Shut

Now streaming on Netflix.

i always wondered if Stanley K sorta had this poem in mind when working on this film. too bad he passed away before he was completely finished.

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Edgar Allan Poe

This is on my top 10 favorite movie list. I've met very few people who like this film. Glad to see fellow Halloween lovers "get it".

I ashamedly admit that I've not seen this film. Bad. Me.

I'll work on it.
