Is the new film from the director of "City of God" worth your VODollars?

"360."
"360."

More and more films premiere on Video on Demand -- if they don't simply bypass a theatrical release altogether. Because VOD reviews are often scarce and hard to find, Criticwire created VODetails, a recurring column to help you figure out whether a new VOD release is worth your hard-earned dollar.  This time we're looking at "360," which is the new ensemble drama from "City of God" director Fernando Meirelles, and not the sixtieth sequel to the popular Spartan action film "300."

Director: Fernando Meirelles

Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Rachel Weisz

Official Synopsis: "A sexy dramatic thriller about interconnected romantic life in the 21st century. '360' starts in Vienna, weaving stories set in Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix into a single, mesmerizing narrative. A businessman tempted to be unfaithful to his wife sets into motion a series of events which ripple around the globe with dramatic consequences, set against the backdrop of international banking crisis, the domino-effect of the Arab Spring, the threat of global flu pandemics and Euro-Zone instability. From the director of 'City of God' and 'The Constant Gardener,' and featuring a terrific ensemble cast, let by Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Rachel Weisz and Ben Foster."

Reviews:

Mark Adams, Screen International:

"A masterpiece of structure... punctuated by a series of impressive performances."

James Mudge, Beyond Hollywood:

"An exceptionally accomplished and well-crafted film."

Cory Everett, The Playlist:

"The film is a handsomely produced ensemble drama but its pleasures are fleeting."

Kirk HoneycuttThe Hollywood Reporter:

"The film is never less than intriguing. But the artifice shows all too clearly."

Tim Grierson, The Projector:

"The individual vignettes are handled with a masterful eye for composition and pacing, but '360' has so little emotional resonance beneath its coincidences, ironic parallels, and 'hey, ain't life random?' musings that you mostly sit there wasting time thinking about composition and pacing."

"360" is now available on VOD. It opens in limited release on August 3rd.
