* SpottingTheThread: It's rather telling to arrive at a fancy party in the middle of nowhere in a taxi when everybody else arrives in a limousine.
** As well as wearing a different cloak than everyone else and not donning your mask until you've already entered the house.

* SymbolMotifClothing: Bill's mask is a generic face mask with a golden, mask-like structure of its own resting atop the forehead and cheeks. Though probably not a conscious decision on Bill's part, it could be taken as a symbol that in the crowd of disguised faces, his disguise has another layer.

Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsScarier: The whole film, especially the scenes during and after the masked ball, have an overwhelming sense of dread. We know something sinsiter is going on with the cult and its actions, but we never find out what. Even more disturbing is thinking about what the cult did to the masked woman who sacrificed herself to save Bill, assuming Ziegler was lying. Seeing her led off into the dark makes one think it ''isn't'' pleasent to think about.

Added DiffLines:

* UnknownCharacter: The only people conirmed to be at the ball are Bill and Ziegler. No one ever takes their mask off, so any number of characters that appear before could potentially be there. A popular theory is that Domino was actually the girl that sacrificed herself to save Bill instead of Mandy; other characters viewers guessed to have been there include Milich's daughter, Sally, and even Alice.
** Also up for debate is the identity of Red Cloak. Besides the guess that it's a separate character, contenders brought up include Sandor, Mr. Milich, or Ziegler.

* BreakInThreat: Possibly. It's unclear if the bad guys left the main character's mask on his bed as a threat or if his wife simply found the mask herself.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The ultimate fates of Nick and Domino are never revealed. Ziegler tells Bill that Nick was taken back to Seattle to live with his family and Bill apparently visits Domino's apartment on a day she's not there. However, there is plenty of evidence to discredit both of these claims; it depends on if you think Ziegler and Domino's roommate, respectively, are telling the truth.

Creator/StanleyKubrick's last film, completed just days before his death in 1999, ''Eyes Wide Shut'' follows Dr. Bill Harford (played by Creator/TomCruise) as he spends two noirish, [[MindScrew surreal nights]] on his [[QuestForSex sexually charged adventures]] wandering New York City when his wife Alice (played by Cruise's then wife Creator/NicoleKidman) reveals that she had contemplated an affair a year earlier.

Added DiffLines:

* InspiredBy: A very rare case of inversion. The closing credits state that the film was "inspired by" the Arthur Schnitzler's novella, but it is in fact a rather faithful adaptation (down to the key pieces of dialogue).
