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.

Anomalous and mesmerising.

Solaris light - shorter, more focused, more accessible, sweeter.

Soderbergh's film is the perfect blend of artiness and mainstream appeal, a triumph for Hollywood's most successful art-house director.

It's an interesting movie and a good rental, but it never quite engages like it should.

A memorable meditation on life, love and loss and a throwback to the days when science-fiction films put an emphasis on big ideas over big toys.

O filme se prejudica ao tentar amarrar demais seu desfecho a fim de dar uma justificativa para os espectadores contemporâneos.
| Original Score: 4/5

No film this acutely self-aware has fallen victim to unjust contempt so widespread since Last Action Hero.

Steven Soderbergh's head scratcher is more concerned with inner than outer space.
| Original Score: 2/4
April 5, 2003
In a move as audacious as it is disastrous, Steve Soderbergh has decided to push the edges of what filmmaking can be and created in Solaris not so much a motion picture as a still life.

With audacity and style, Steven Soderbergh has revisited one of Russian cinema's landmarks, and done so very successfully.

It has the courage to wonder about big questions with sincerity and devotion. It risks seeming slow and pretentious, because it thinks the gamble is worth the promise.

If you're the type to be stimulated by Solaris's weighty philosophical issues, it's a mind-bending sci-fi trip into the unknown. For all others, it will be the perfect cure for insomnia. .

A moody, multi-dimensional love story and sci-fi mystery, Solaris is a thought-provoking, haunting film that allows the seeds of the imagination to germinate.

Soderbergh has given us a boutique space picture - smallish but classy with a translucent glow, accented in chrome, white and blue and touched up with crystalline surfaces.

Clooney handles himself very well in a rare dramatic role; he draws us into Kelvin's obsessive mind nicely, although he's perhaps not quite up to the challenge of taking us over the brink.

Thoughtful, moving, impressively-directed sci-fi with a great performance by Clooney -- the pace may be off-putting but this is a deeply rewarding film.

Completely devoid of splashy special effects, Soderbergh's Solaris is beautifully shot with a minimalist effect.
