Review
The theme for these three shorts is desire – a comfortable mode for Wong Kar-Wai whose ‘The Hand' offers a miniature version of his swooningly gorgeous, chronologically choppy impressionism; an apprentice tailor is bowled over by Gong Li's imperious 60s courtesan to whom, despite a reversal of fortune, he remains a devoted supplicant for decades. Set in 1955 Soderbergh's chamber piece ‘Equilibrium' is the lightest and wittiest of the three; Robert Downey Jr is a neurotic ad exec with recurring dreams about a woman who isn't his wife.
