Slow moving, interesting ideas, falls short
27 December 2002 | by GodzillerSee all my reviews

This combination of short stories has some actors I really like in some unusual plot situations. The work seems to be intent upon provoking thoughts regarding the nature of relationships and non-relationships and is centered around passionate encounters of varying levels of eroticism. Each piece left me feeling as though I had merely experienced an incomplete thought with a little bit of almost unnecessary voyeurism thrown in. I say nice try, but no significant thrills or thoughts came out of the time spent watching this movie. Maybe a single movie should have been woven using all of these actors togetherin chance encounters!
