Eros

Rated R 2005

This is not a single film but three, joined in a common goal. The first segment was made by Wong Kar Wai (In the Mood for Love) and the second by Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Erin Brockovich); the final, by any measure the climax, was by legendary director Michelangelo Antonioni. Kar Wai's "The Hand," about a tailor (Chang Chen) besotted with desire for an elegant courtesan (Gong Li), is a gorgeous work of slow and painful longing, saturated in gray, soaking in romantic pathos. Soderbergh's "Equilibrium," about a neurotic man fussing over a sexual dream, is a lighter, though intelligent piece of work. Antonioni's "The Dangerous Thread of Things," in which a couple's relationship has tanked, is rich with delights, naked breasts among them. Eros is a tribute not merely to the entangled concepts of romantic love and sexual desire -- and to the human failure to achieve the former and fulfill the latter -- but to Antonioni himself. In the words of Soderbergh: "I wanted my name on a poster with Michelangelo Antonioni."
