I'm not a filmmaker nor do I pretend to know what all goes into the making of a movie (although I do happen to have a copy of John Russo's book Making Movies from back when I thought I wanted to make horror flicks for a living) so you'll have to forgive me if I happen to get some of the technical stuff wrong.
What I do know is that every time I sit down to watch a Kubrick film I always feel weird and a bit off. Oh sure, I completely understand that A Clockwork Orange and The Shining is supposed to freak you out a lot, but Eyes Wide Shut? (other than the fact that Tom Cruise is in an orgy movie) Why the Frak am I supposed to be filled with a sense of dread over that flick?
And then it hit me (after watching this video, of course, I'm not that insightful) Kubrick loves his one-point perspective shot, which kinda makes the viewer focus intently onto one area of a scene, and then he layers in a heavy dose of mood music which activates that area in your brain that's like OMG! SOMETHING'S GONNA HAPPEN! And voila! You have just been sucked into the world of Stanley Kubrick.
So yeah, I guess this collection of his one-point perspective shots does make it clear that if something really works why fuck with it.
But it still weirds me out that Eyes Wide Shut affects me so.
