Title: FAVORITE SODERBERGH FLICK?
Post by: modage on June 12, 2003, 04:29:13 PM
alright, i realize a lot of people hate these RANK YOUR FAVORITE POLLS, but you dont have to participate if you dont want to.  its just for those who like making lists and ranking favorites and anybody whos bored.  i think its interesting with soderbergh because he debuted strong with SL&V, drifted off into indie oblivion and then came back to make big hollywood features.  so, i imagine people will have a wide range of favorites since his career is so varied.

It's all about Schizopolis. So fuckin strange and funny and constantly surprising. And it actually - in its own silly, subversive way - has something to say too...

Right now, The Limey...I'll wait until I've seen Solaris a few more times to decide whether it is its equal or a close second.

I like all of them to varying degrees, but to me, "Traffic" is just above and beyond everything else.

Out of Sight, with Traffic trailing really close. The Limey and Full Frontal are really great as well. I love all his films, hard to pick a fav.

Favorite is Out of Sight.  Really great DVD too.

i was on a mission from god.
but then i got fired.

thanks for the welcome note..........

i gotta make a comment re:  THE LIMEY (which i enjoyed quite a bit):

THE LIMEY has to be one of the best looking DVDs i've ever seen.  the reproduction/transfer is as close to film as you're gonna get.

christ - that was my yearbook photo.  no wonder i never scored.

i gotta qualify my response from way back - this joint is about FILM and not ME after all.

although i love KAFKA to high heaven, i think my fav. soderbergh film is still OUT OF SIGHT.  i'm not sure what it is about it, but i think it has to do with the fact that i'm a big fan of JACKIE BROWN as well..........

i guess - i'd put it this way:  my favourite film to watch repeatedly is OUT OF SIGHT, but the film i admire most by soderbergh is probably SEX, LIES & VIDEOTAPE.   i mean - it's just so damn wonderful and unique and........sundancey.   :shock:

honourable mention to KAFKA for being dashit dat franz kafka would have made, if he was born 100 years later.

Traffic is a tremendous film, really his career achievement. It deserved all the awards it received and it's the one he'll be remembered for.

BUT, Out of Sight is my favorite. It's just scene after hilarious scene. Clooney, Lopez, Guzman, Zahn, Cheadle, Brooks, Farina, Rhames, Keaton. Just an unbelievably hip and entertaining film.

The Limey.  Hands down.

...and Terrance Stamp's cameo in Full Frontal is the greatest part of that otherwise drab film.

Is this DVD out of print now?  I can't find it anywhere.  If it is, any news on a new disc?

Yes, it is and no, I don't know anything about a new release but you can get a used copy at amazon for over 20 bucks.
