Just would like to know peoples ideas of Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and Lynch's Mulholland Dr.,not on wether or not there good,,but ideas on meaning.Compare and Contrast there use of Dreams.
Eyes Wide Shut manages to create a sense of claustrophobia while still having to deal with one of the world’s largest citiesThere was nothing at all for EWS to manage: I have heard the claustrophobia complaint from 100% of my visiting friends, and now that I don't live there anyome, I also feel it when I go back. Tall buildings, the fact that "everything is close together" and the crowd wherever its present are largely responsible for this.
That is my take on the NYC aspect of the analysis, which IMO is flawed. I don't believe that EWS is a dream at all. I will certainly watch it again with an open mind.
