|Plot Summary of Eyes Wide Open|
Frederic Raphael is an Academy Award winning screenwriter hired by the late great director Stanley Kubrick to write the screenplay of Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick's last movie. Raphael scrupulously details the ups and downs of his professional relationship with director Kubrick, as well as his fledgling friendship with the notoriously reclusive "Stanley".
Raphael chronicles the difficulties he encountered as a Hollywood screenwriter working with a genius but obsessive and controlling film director. Raphael also provides generous portions of conversations between the two men about moviemaking, sex, war, and great historical figures.
While far from being an exhaustive biography of a well known Hollywood director, Raphael's short book is a window into the labrynthine mind of Stanley Kubrick.
