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.

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.
I have Magic Mike on my DVD stack, and I need to watch it. Thanks for the push, Rachel. 🙂
Have you got to this one yet? I’d be interested in what you thought.
This event is set to arrive in less than 10 days. Looking forward to it. Thanks, Rachel.
