Eyes Wide Shut is a erotic mystery psychological drama that was produced by Warner Brothers. The film was released on July 16, 1999. In order to avoid an NC-17 rating the film was censored for the US release. When DVD's came out the film was rereleased with a new Unrated cut that was the NC-17 cut. HBO Max only airs the R rated cut. Hindu groups in the UK protested about the inclusion of a verse from the Bhagvad Gita and successfully caused all versions of the film in the UK to be censored.

It is Stanley Kubrick's final film as director until his death on March 7, 1999.
