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...

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.

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
July 8, 2005
A trio of films by Antonioni and two other directors dealing with the subject of sexual fantasy and obsession.
May 11, 2005
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
April 14, 2005
Three short movies with sexual themes by filmmakers of extraordinary interest.
April 11, 2005
It's really interesting stuff.
April 11, 2005
A worthwhile experience that will stick in the mind for a long time after the screening has ended.
April 10, 2005
Ironically, in the case of Antonioni's contribution, never has nudity been so gratuitous nor sex so boring.
April 9, 2005
After all, it was Antonioni who inspired Wong and Soderbergh to make this film in the first place.
April 8, 2005
A haunting collection of notes that can't -- and maybe shouldn't -- be tied together.
April 8, 2005
Wong's bittersweet segment alone makes it worth watching.
April 8, 2005
The three films are watchable but resolutely minor works, though each has something to recommend it.
April 8, 2005
The gem is Wong Kar-wai's The Hand, one of his sultry, pensive sonatas of stylized nostalgia.
April 8, 2005
I return to Wong Kar-Wai's The Hand. It stays with me. The characters expand in my memory and imagination. I feel empathy for both of them.
April 7, 2005
Wong masterfully creates a sense of profound yearning--the screen seems saturated with unfulfilled and unrequited erotic longing.
April 7, 2005
The strongest segment is Wong Kar-wai's The Hand.
April 7, 2005
I'd say that this mixed bag is better toted home from a video store, but Wong Kar-Wai's just not as swoony on a picture tube...cineastes, proceed with caution.
April 7, 2005
'The Hand' is worth the price of admission to Eros, but you may want to stick around for Steven Soderbergh's 'Equilibrium.'
April 7, 2005
Wong's is the sexiest, Soderbergh's the funniest, Antonioni's the most Italian.
