Globe-trotting drama explores sex, grief, betrayal.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that 360, which is loosely based on the 1900 play La Ronde, follows different pairs of characters, usually before, during, or after a sexual encounter. With sexuality the unifying theme in the international drama, the movie definitely isn't meant for anyone but adults and the most mature older teens. The sexual content includes nudity, fairly graphic displays of prostitution, adultery, and even the emotional turmoil of a sexual offender trying to control his urges. Language is strong -- "f--k," "a--hole," "s--t" and more -- and violence includes aggressive sex and a bloody double murder.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about what they think the filmmaker is trying to say about the global reach of our actions. Is sexuality the driving medium of communication between people? How can parents and teens communicate better about sex and relationships?
  • Which vignette impacted you the most? Why do some stories seem to connect more than others? Did the fact that 360 took place in various cities around the world make it more difficult to understand?

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: 360 throws in enough cold weather, meaningful stares and cursory explorations of globalism to fool easily-impressed audiences into thinking they've seen something important, but there's nothing new or resonant going on here.

- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, Thursday, August 2, 2012

Rotten: Much like its own characters, it dithers too much - and it dares too little.

- Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, Thursday, August 9, 2012

Rotten: A mistake from beginning to end.

- Andrew O'Hehir,, Thursday, August 2, 2012

To review this movie all I really need to do is quote my beautiful wife. This is word for word exactly what she said when the movie finished "That was stupid! A waste of my time". We usually disagree on movies, as she thinks everything I was is weird and dumb. But here, we agree completely. The concept of this movie has been done many times before, and so much better. Which makes it so disappointing that this just fails to be the good movie it could have been. It's a series of different stories spanning the globe and how they weave together and come to a full 360. Stars Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster, Rachel Weisz, and Jude Law. Foster is the best and most interesting character in the movie, but he is only on screen for like 10 minutes, which is a shame. The biggest problem for me with the movie is a lack of conclusion. None of the stories have a real finish to them. Open endings are usually fine with me, but wrap something up, don't just cut everything off and give no answers to anything. It really is a waste of time, and a movie that you would better be served to just skip over all together.

An unimpressive drama about people, decisions, situations - vague as it seems and using a high-class cast to state the obvious. The stories are never resonant, while the characters are never given enough time to develop into flesh and blood figures.

''360'' has some fine performances from its ensemble cast and there was a section around the 50 minute mark that I was interested in, but it's a dull, empty film lacking any sort of punch.
