Eyes Wide Shut

Trivia: The strange incantation heard at the beginning of the orgy scene is a fragment of a Romanian Orthodox Church sermon played backwards. If you play it backwards you'll notice that there are two main voices (in the movie is supposed to be only one - the voice of the "great priest") and a choir.

Trivia: Christiane Kubrick, Stanley's wife, has a cameo as the woman sitting behind Dr. Harford at Café Sonata.

It's pretty clear and not all that fast.
