It is Stanley Kubrick's final film, also written by him, together with Frederic Raphael. It stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman as an upper-class New York City couple experiencing sexual tensions in the marriage, as well temptations, culminating with Tom Cruise's character wandering the city devastated, after his wife confesses contemplating an affair a year earlier. It is a powerful meditation on sexuality and how it relates to marriage, death and power, featuring superb camerawork, scenography and overall electric atmosphere. I find the orgy summoning scene especially magnificent.
This clip contains the infamous bedroom scene, in which Nicole Kidman's character, feeling a need to hurt his partner at that moment, tells a story about fantasizing on being with another man a year earlier, with such tone and gravity that it ends up containing more weight than any actual infidelity might have. It prompts Tom Cruise's character, Dr. Bill Harford, to question everything he knows about himself as a man and a husband, as he embarks on a night-long adventure, wandering the city, looking for a way to reclaim his sexuality.
