Circular exploration of sex, love and relationships, in which interconnected characters reveal how actions, reactions and consequences impact on us all

One of those movies with a plot that is intricately constructed of a bunch of seemingly unrelated parts that end up fitting together improbably, but very nicely at the end.

Globe-trotting drama explores sex, grief, betrayal.

Despite a few good moments, it's depressing, obnoxious, and condescending. To use a favorite critics' word, it's "leaden"... it just refuses to move.

[A] subtle and striking globehopping ensemble drama of human interactions shaped by sex and love, honesty and deception, allure and retreat...

See it for its willingness to take you somewhere you don't expect.

360 has a circular structure that's deftly pleasing, though the human drama is just facile enough to make it seem, in the end, a little too much like connect the dots played with people.

...doesn't have much of a theme but for the sparks of intimate connection thrown off by its talented cast every few minutes.

Meirelles keeps the film humming along, braiding these strangers into a single display of yearning, albeit a craving that takes the occasional unsavory turn.

La Ronde 2011-style is simply a game and its makers expert gamesmen. The film is never less than intriguing. But the artifice shows all too clearly.

This beautifully assembled film is easy to watch. But that's the problem: the subject matter should be much more difficult than this, as it's about having the courage to make unexpected choices.

This is the filmic equivalent of a relay race. Some legs work very well but, during others, Meirelles and his team risk dropping the baton altogether.

If the film had not been afraid to go a little darker, dig a little deeper and develop its characters beyond their stereotypes, it would have been a much stronger effort.

Spending 111 minutes watching people at the mall would be a more illuminating study of human behavior-and undoubtedly more entertaining.

It often feels forced and inauthentic. Perhaps it's a weakness of the direction, but ultimately the film fails to fire up all its many cylinders

It just goes to show that, even with so much talent involved behind and in front of the camera, some material just won't work.
