"The close-ups of Charlie imagining his wife are dreamy and piercing, and perhaps deliberately reminiscent of “Eyes Wide Shut,” another film about a cuckolded man who goes on a Homeric nighttime odyssey, encountering women who represent aspects of the wife he fears he has lost." 

 

"...Charlie is a Marlon Brando character in a John Cassavettes movie.
