Rade Serbedzija's Quotes

  • [on Eyes Wide Shut (1999)] I had three scenes in the film originally and Kubrick cut one beautiful scene with Tom and me - very nice dialogue, I remember - where Tom was trying his costume and mask. It was the next scene after his daughter left the room, and they were in another room in front of mirrors, and he was dressed in his costume and trying his mask. I forgot the lines but I think they were talking about his daughter. It was a really good scene. I think Kubrick cut it because he didn't want to show Tom in his mask and cloak before the orgy.
