sex, lies and videotape

Dir: Steven Soderbergh
Star: James Spader, Andie MacDowell, Peter Gallagher, Laura San Giacomo

[6] This film could easily have been some sort of prequel to Videodrome; Spader looks very like a young James Woods, and his character, who goes around filming women talking about sex because he's impotent, also resembles a prototype Max Renn. It's a little slow in places, to the point of tedium, yet has a bleak beauty that does sustain interest and the characters are realistically complex. As a debut movie for the director, it's impressive - the man is clearly one to watch in future.


Soon to be remade
