In other words, he deliberately shot his movies with practically nothing of interest happening in the top or bottom of the frame, so that you would not miss anything when seeing it on the big screen in 1.85, and would merely see a longer (as opposed to wider) image on video or DVD. Warners have re-released 'Eyes Wide Shut' in 1.85 widescreen but the image, while it appears to be 'cropped', is in fact missing nothing - this is exactly how it would have appeared in the cinema. If you compare this new DVD presentation to the original DVD released in 2000, you will see that in fact there is nothing to miss at the top or bottom of the frame, so cropping makes no difference. Hope that clears it up!! By the way, this movie is a modern classic and one of Kubrick's finest achievements, a movie which, while somewhat flawed and no doubt not to everyone's taste, is so marvellously well-made, and so rich in its own unique and vivid atmosphere, that it's a pretty unforgettable experience. Kubrick apparently regarded it as his 'greatest film ever.'
