* 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.

* EndingFatigue: After TheReveal, the film still goes on for some time. Probably [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as it highlights that the mystery, captivating and intriguing though it is, [[MocksteryTale is ultimately of secondary importance]] compared to the issues of lust, trust and fidelity. [[MindScrew And then there's a possibility that the reveal was false anyway...]]

The film being advertised in total secrecy, impressive seeing how the internet was starting to become a major player with script leaks of other movies being commonplace, and released in a summer that included ''[[Franchise/StarWars Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace]]'' and ''Film/TheSixthSense,'' the film received a [[LoveItOrHateIt deeply polarized reaction]] from both critics and moviegoers as they went into what was packaged as "Sexy Times with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman" and walked out with a complex, esoteric and largely [[FanDisservice unsexy]] film that subverted all their expectations. Like all of Stanley Kubrick's other movies, it's slowly being VindicatedByHistory, yet still remains somewhat divisive. It also has acquired a huge MisaimedFandom (or {{Hatedom}}), particularly among ConspiracyTheorist communities, who project some incredibly strange WildMassGuessing on to both the movie's plot and production history. Still recommended for Kubrick aficionados and completionists.
