I could never warm up to any of the characters or their perversions or neuroses.
| Original Score: C+
The women (played by Tilda Swinton and Amy Madigan) are so intriguing and complex that they almost overcome the trappings of a non-linear narrative that's borderline academic.
| Original Score: 3/4
The result is short on plot but long on observational detail and psychological resonance.
Humorless and swathed in symbolism, it taunts us with cerebral puzzles that we may not care to solve.
Even if it works better as a provocative psychological treatise than as art, it does come alive and does provide major roles for Tilda Swinton and Amy Madigan.
Through a complex narrative technique and stunning imagery, the movie ... slips behind the mask of invincibility to portray a woman plagued by self-doubt and anguish.
| Original Score: B
Unless you're already passionate about the movie's themes, you may not feel convinced or drawn in.
As a whole Female Perversions only provides a bewildering collection of beautifully photographed images and thought-provoking set pieces.
| Original Score: 3/5
Our Eve uses her beauty and sexuality to get ahead and yet simultaneously rails against both, leaving the viewer to ponder that age-old mystery of life: Who cares?
| Original Score: 2/5
Streitfeld is only fitfully successful.
| Original Score: 2/4
Dreamy but seemingly endless, ambitious but affected, daring but banal film.
Often too pretentious to be profound.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
This is the kind of movie you can't stop thinking about.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
This film is steamy, pulsing with veracity, boldly performed.
Taken as a whole, this is not a product of the cookie cutter and should be of interest to the adventurous filmgoer.
The most intelligent, entertaining, provocative, absorbing, and, yes, feminist movie to grace our theatres in quite some time.
| Original Score: 4/5
A richly textured movie that demands a second viewing to comprehend it all.
Thanks to the mercurial fluency of Ms. Swinton's hot-and-cold performance, Eve emerges as much more than a symbolic case study of a powerful woman inwardly tearing herself to pieces.
| Original Score: 3/5
