...it remains a fascinating work and its deep questioning of what makes us human when faced with simulacrums feels if anything more relevant today than when it was made.

Steven Soderbergh prunes Andrei Tartovsky?s 1972 film (based on Stanislaw Lem?s novel) to the clarity and concision of a great short story ? a forlorn, philosophical sci-fi romance treading the terrain of "Blade Runner?s" metaphysical melancholy.

A thought provoking, fascinating and heart breaking glimpse into characters that must come to grips with their past.

Steven Soderbergh's extremely sedate, Spartan science-fiction thriller and love story pits man's common sense and perceptions of a higher power against his own dreams and desires.

It's an unusual challenge for a Hollywood film with a major star, but worth the effort.

While Mr. Soderbergh's direction is always compelling, the whole film does not always equal the sum of its parts.

Scripted, shot, directed and edited by Soderbergh with his customary intelligence and assurance, this is perhaps the most ambiguous and cerebrally sophisticated Hollywood movie in nearly three decades.

Soderbergh's Solaris is a gorgeous and deceptively minimalist cinematic tone poem.

Soderbergh's latest may well leave Stanislaw Lem grumbling. My bet is virtually everyone else will be blown away.

The Nation

The images are crisp and the pacing faultless, as you'd expect with Soderbergh, and the soundtrack (with music by Cliff Martinez) is an environment in itself.

Many will justifiably find [it] a heady experience akin to 90 minutes of watching paint dry. Others will see that paint forming something close to a masterpiece.

Looking Closer

Based on Stanislaw Lem's novel and Andrei Tarkovsky's sci-fi epic, Soderbergh's Solaris is drastically abridged and the most sentimental of the three.

Sure Solaris is ambitious. Even audacious. But too many plot points are left to the audience's imagination without any explanation whatsoever.

Love it or hate it, however, there's no question this is a seriously intended work by a major American filmmaker.

I really wanted to like Solaris, but it offers very little, and will inevitably fall upon the barren ground in between commercial success and critical acclaim because it isn't courageous enough in its execution to appeal strongly to members of either camp.
