* TheUnreveal: {{Deconstructed|Trope}}: Victor says that [[spoiler: Mandy died of an overdose after being gang-banged at the orgy and that Nick got the crap beaten out of him but is alive and well and that the super-wealthy people at the orgy didn't have them killed and we only have Victor's word on the subject, which is suspect since these answers come in the same breath that he's telling Bill to forget what he saw at the mansion. Because the people at the orgy are the super-rich and super-powerful and that Bill should be grateful that Victor's effectively giving him all the answers he needs to hear, Victor says he has to move on and forget what happened that night.]]

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.
