Have you seen Eyes Wide Shut? Great movie. Cool costumes, scary as hell, intense performance from Nicole Kidman. One of my favorites by Kubrick, though you may be hard-pressed to find many people who agree with me on that. Anyway, Ani Bezzerides is the true detective.

Separate fact from fiction in this (vaguely) informative not-really-a-quiz and find out what you could easily Google!
