It is fairly melancholy news that the works of two of Antonioni's admirers outshine the master's segment.

A maddeningly uneven triptych about the vagaries of sexual longing.

Three master filmmakers craft short films about desire that leave a lot to be desired.

Feels like an experiment that you'd be happy to catch during a film festival ... right before you nodded off for a solid 90-minute catnap.

There's nothing particularly erotic about this mixed bag of stories which never quite mesh.

Three is a crowd, and Wong and Soderbergh would have got along just fine without Antonioni there to wreck the marriage.

An anthological example of attentive students surpassing their teacher.

The chatter in the lobby, I predict, will be from people wondering how and when [Antonioni] flipped his lid... The film is a failure, no matter how grandiose its title or the names above it.

If there's a point to any of this, it's the supposedly therapeutic revelation that major female mystery lies in what you can discover by rifling through her purse.

For the invited filmmaker, the opportunity to make a statement is surely a thrill, but for the viewer -- who can't pause indefinitely, as with a book, between stories -- the focus-shifting is a demand.

When the producers of Eros... 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.

A flaccidly pretentious and snooze-inducing trilogy of allegedly racy tales.
