It's Kubrick, for sure, and in often mesmerizing form.

Kubrick left one more brilliantly provocative tour de force as his epitaph.

ReelViews
In terms of power and effect, Eyes Wide Shut approaches (but does not surpass) Kubrick's vintage work - it is thought-provoking and unsettling.
80
It's painstakingly paced, but it's also entrancing.

If some nagging sense of anachronism, a bit too much Freudian Vienna in his postmodern New York, prevents Eyes Wide Shut from being at the top of his list, Kubrick's 13th and last film is his most humane.

New York Daily News
Ultimately, Eyes Wide Shut doesn't rank among Kubrick's best work.

TNT RoughCut
It's a mind-blowing game, and all that nonsense about this being an erotic thriller was merely part of Kubrick's game.
50
The director's famously over-deliberate, pause-laden style verges, for the first time, on amateurville, and that gives us too much time to linger on the movie's more bizarre details.

Slate
A somnolent load of wank.
20
It's empty of ideas, which is fine, but it's also empty of heat.
