  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.

    What might have been a cinephile's wet dream turns out instead to be seductive, stimulating and sodden, in that order, in the three-chapter reflection on love and desire.
  4. When the producers of Eros, a triptych of short stories about eroticism and desire, described what they wanted from Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai, American Steven Soderbergh and Italian master Michelangelo Antonioni, they must have written the memo in Chinese. Only Wong attempted something sensual.
  5. Only one of the three episodes of the anthology film Eros delivers on the title's promise.
  6. 50
    A maddeningly uneven triptych.
  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. 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
