At least the editor had the good sense to place Antonioni's film at the end, allowing you to walk out without having to see a cinematic great in pathetic decline

Eros comes nowhere near meeting the challenge of its title when compared to the increasingly lewd standards of our current cinema.
James Rocchi
April 25, 2005
Three master filmmakers craft short films about desire that leave a lot to be desired.

There's one good movie in here, sure. But unfortunately, it's over after the first 43 minutes.

A triptych only a film festival could love.

Three short movies with sexual themes by filmmakers of extraordinary interest.

Despite its title, "Eros" is decidedly unerotic. This triptych of shorts by three of the world's most interesting directors demonstrates again that anthology films don't work

It's really interesting stuff.

A worthwhile experience that will stick in the mind for a long time after the screening has ended.

Ironically, in the case of Antonioni's contribution, never has nudity been so gratuitous nor sex so boring.

This is an experiment by three of the great masters of cinema, proving yet again that geniuses can screw up from time to time.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

After all, it was Antonioni who inspired Wong and Soderbergh to make this film in the first place.

A haunting collection of notes that can't -- and maybe shouldn't -- be tied together.

A collection of bagatelles that, with one exception, fails to live up to its promise.
April 8, 2005
Wong's bittersweet segment alone makes it worth watching.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

The three films are watchable but resolutely minor works, though each has something to recommend it.

The gem is Wong Kar-wai's The Hand, one of his sultry, pensive sonatas of stylized nostalgia.
Timothy Knight
April 8, 2005
In comparison to the Kar-Wai and Soderbergh segments, The Dangerous Thread of Things is a languorous bore that provides an unsatisfying coda to Eros.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Seattle Times
April 8, 2005
All the stories deal with sex, all three segments tend to photograph their leading actors unflatteringly and all three reveal prominent writer-directors at low ebb.

A flaccidly pretentious and snooze-inducing trilogy of allegedly racy tales.
| Original Score: 1/4
