    Useless bit of trivia.....it was all filmed in the UK. Beckton gasworks in the East End of London was used as the streets of Hue.

    Great movie. Kubrick lived in the town I grew up in, where he also filmed 2001. One of my best friends dad worked for him as a driver/handyman, he always had some cool movie stuff around his house.

    I was just in the DMZ in Vietnam, so I'm busy watching all the Vietnam movies trying to get a better sense on what went on over there.

    At least one reference to that movie is made everyday amongst the guys I work with. Once we got a new guy that wasn't that bright. We nicknamed him "Pyle" he didn't last long.

    Nother bit of trivia- Ermy made his audition tape of explitives while having people throw stuff at him.

    More trivia- That was the last good movie Kubrick made.

    Ehhhhhhh I thought eyes wide shut was pretty good..... Very dark and strange yet totally preposterous. I thouroughly enjoyed it because it made me feel very uncomfortable.
