After his wife, Alice, tells him about her sexual fantasies, William Harford sets out for a night of sexual adventure. After several less than successful encounters, he meets an old friend, Nick Nightingale--now a musician--who tells him of strange sex parties where he is required to play the piano blindfolded. All the men at the party are costumed and wear masks while the women are all young and beautiful. Harford manages to find an appropriate costume and heads out to the party. Once there, however, he is warned by someone who recognizes him, despite the mask, that he is in great danger. He manages to extricate himself, but the threats prove to be quite real and sinister.Written by

In most non-English language versions translated copies of the letter Dr. Harford recieves when returning to the front gate of the house with the "forbidden party" and of the newspaper article about the ex-Miss N.Y., Mandy, were shot and replaced the original English text. See more »
I'm sure I'm not the only one watching this movie in 2020. I was too young to watch it in 1999, anyway.
I think the movie was pretty good but it's not for everyone. It's the kind of a movie that you can really like or really hate. If you like movies that leaves you thinking about them like the likes of no country for old men or seven psychopaths, you will love Eyes wide shut. If you don't like such Movies, please keep away from it coz it will bore you.
I still think it should have been shorter, though. 2 hours 40 minutes is a lot for the movie in my opinion.
