Eyes Wide Shut (1999) Directed by Stanley Kubrick is absolutly beautifully lit. The interior lighting in Eyes Wide Shut emanates from visible, practical sources. Low temperature household lamps cast a warm, orange glow over the interior scenes. All fixtures were wired to a dimmer in order to maintain complete control over intensity. The opulent party scene that follows was lit, in contrast, entirely with practical Christmas lights, supplemented by the occasional china-ball on a pole for close-ups. The color red was used when Tom Cruise's character was fearful or scared.
