How are the mighty scattered, fallen and lost.

The rain still drips like tears in Wong's faintly lit alleyways, the paint in his narrow corridors continues to peel, the floral-print curtains in his '60s drawing rooms still billow in the breeze--but the colors have faded...

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.

I guess one out of three ain't bad.

Three directors combine short films to form a triptych about love. The problem? The connections are tenuous at best. These are really three films marketed as sharing a theme.
June 15, 2007
Three is a crowd, and Wong and Soderbergh would have got along just fine without Antonioni there to wreck the marriage.

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.

Anthologies by their inherent nature tend to be highly uneven. And Eros proves no exception, with the individual sections ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.
September 23, 2006
An excruciating festival of middlebrow good taste.
August 17, 2006
An intriguing but ultimately frustrating triptych.
July 21, 2006
All three short films were minor works.

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.

Eros demeure une expérience réussie en son genre, même si aucun des cinéastes invités ne réussit réellement à repousser les limites de son propre cinéma

Three smart filmmakers produce three whiffs on the theme of love.
January 17, 2006
confoundingly horrendous
September 26, 2005
The auteurist feast turns out to be a paltry spread, with one director on autopilot, another playing it safe, and the last apparently working on assignment for the European Red Shoe Diaries.
July 8, 2005
A trio of films by Antonioni and two other directors dealing with the subject of sexual fantasy and obsession.
July 8, 2005
It is fairly melancholy news that the works of two of Antonioni's admirers outshine the master's segment.
July 5, 2005
No matter what caliber of talent is on board, omnibus anthology pictures are almost doomed to be uneven affairs.
June 15, 2005
Eros aims high. But aside from Wong Kar-Wai's effectively compressed erotic musings, it falls short.
