The good stuff
By far one of the craziest and weirdest films Soderbergh directed. Schizopolis is near impossible to describe, but the dry and deadpan comedy that strips away the layer of decency built up by our society is a joy to behold. A tad long maybe, but that's hardly an issue when there's so much originality and creativity on display.
Sex, Lies, and Videotape
Fun and quirky take on the Panama Papers scandal. In the same vein as McKay's The Big Short, Soderbergh tackles a pretty complex and dry subject in an accessible and amusing way. With a star-studded cast and plenty of flair, he turns what could've been a dull and lifeless affair into an extremely watchable film.
High Flying Bird
You'd be forgiven for thinking this is a boring and insignificant film, but as time passes Soderbergh talent starts to shine through. What is essentially a very simple story becomes fun and intriguing. Well acted, Soderbergh's direction is strong and the whole phone cinematography thing transcends its gimmicky nature.
Decent Soderbergh. Unsane delivers a nice spin on the horror genre, with a premise that is dark and grim, but in a very down-to-earth way. Sadly the "shot on iPhone" novelty doesn't bring too much to the table. Would've worked better as a traditionally shot film, but still worth a gamble.
The Girlfriend Experience
One of Soderbergh's indie projects. A small but genuine and candid drama about a high class call girl trying to balance her work with a relationship. The acting is decent, the cinematography is intimate and the film doesn't overstay its welcome. It's nothing out of the ordinary, just a solid and well-made film.
Che: Part One
Out of Sight
Worthy but flawed
And Everything Is Going Fine
Nice doc on Spalding Gray, though maybe a little too focused on his work and monologues. While they are primarily stories about himself and his family, Gray literally explains their poetic foundation, which makes them less fit for a documentary. Even so, a decent portrait of a man with an interesting life and fine career.
