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.

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.

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.

Dreamy but seemingly endless, ambitious but affected, daring but banal film.

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.

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?

Taken as a whole, this is not a product of the cookie cutter and should be of interest to the adventurous filmgoer.

This film is steamy, pulsing with veracity, boldly performed.

Unless you're already passionate about the movie's themes, you may not feel convinced or drawn in.
