Solaris Reviews

June 24, 2006
Scripted, shot, directed and edited by Soderbergh with his customary intelligence and assurance, this is perhaps the most ambiguous and cerebrally sophisticated Hollywood movie in nearly three decades.

Fiasco of infuriating pretentiousness and numbing incoherence.

I prefer Soderbergh's concentration on his two lovers over Tarkovsky's mostly male, mostly patriarchal debating societies.

A hushed, haunted tone poem about love and loss.

[Soderbergh] tends to place most of the psychological and philosophical material in italics rather than trust an audience's intelligence, and he creates an overall sense of brusqueness.

A solemn, splintered meditation on lost love: a movie about personal space, in space.

It is, all at once, exhilarating, frustrating, cryptic and wise.

Although it's meant to be restrained and free of emotional hysteria, the result is a movie that pretty much lies dead on the screen for an hour and a half.

One for the graduate students who know everything about movies except how to enjoy them.
