Steven Soderbergh Blogathon, Jan 14,2014- Feb 1,2014

What I’m looking forward to come 2014 via my colleague Ratnakar. Always great ideas and blogathons from this stellar blogger.

Seetimaar-Diary of a Movie Lover

Steve Soderbergh has been one of my favorite directors, or maybe it is because I have a soft corner for visual stylists.  Soderbergh’s movies have always been visually brilliant, be it the outer space shots in Solaris, or the muted lighting in Out of Sight  or the epic scale of  a Che.  The long range tracking shots, the close ups, the light and shade effects makes his movies a great watch. And he has been one director who has explored all kinds of  genres  from heist( Out of Sight,  Oceans series) to sci fi( Solaris)  to biopic dramas( Che, Kafka)  to  corporate dramas( The Informant).  And of course not to forget the fact that his Sex, Lies and Videotape in 1989, was one of  the early movies that started the 90’s Indie movement.

So in tribute to the director, we would be hosting a Soderbergh blogathon from January…

    I just watched Magic Mike the other day and was thinking about how much I enjoy Soderbergh. I wasn’t expecting to like MM but it ended up exceeding expectations. I completely forgot Soderbergh directed it until the end and key elements of his directing style were definitely what pulled me into a movie I don’t think I would have enjoyed much otherwise. Thanks for highlighting this; I’ll be checking it out in 2014.
