  • Summary: Three visionary directors, three stories of love.

  1. The best is "Equilibrium" by Soderbergh, about a man being analyzed by a distracted shrink.
  2. 67
    The young guns on board are Wong Kar Wai and Steven Soderbergh, and it's sad to report that they massively outshine the nonagenarian Antonioni.
  3. The omnibus film usually saves its home run for the climax, but Eros begins with the best third, Wong Kar-wai's "The Hand."
  4. 50
    A maddeningly uneven triptych.
  5. Only one of the three episodes of the anthology film Eros delivers on the title's promise.
  6. The three films are watchable but resolutely minor works, though each has something to recommend it.
  7. It doesn't seem like overstating things to say that Eros becomes steadily worse as it goes along.

    Anthology of 3 postmodern shorts from Wong Kar-Wai, Soderbergh, and Antonioni apparently ordered from most to least understandable. Wong's "The Hand" features a great Gong Li, but overall it's much more simplistic than Wong's features. Soderbergh's "Equilibrium" is a piece of fantastic overlapping madness. But Antonioni's short is way, *way* too oblique; although it reminds me of "Close-Up," there is no meaningful revelation at the end, only naked Italian women. Expand
