Runner Runner

The Girlfriend Experience

4th December 2009 -

 Movie Review

Soderbergh is in experimental mode with this fractured relationship drama. It's packed with clever touches and sharp observations, but is too dry and repetitive to make us care about the characters.Chelsea (Grey) is a high-priced...

The Girlfriend Experience

21st May 2009 -

 Movie Review

As modern American directors go, few are as stylistically quicksilver and urgent as Steven Soderbergh. With the notable exception of his Ocean's trilogy, the director has never fully embraced any one particular style, though he...

Ocean's Thirteen

8th June 2007 -

 Movie Review

The jazzy music, saturated-to-bleeding colors, and even the credits font make it clear from the outset: Ocean's Thirteen is more variety show than heist thriller. The gang of thieves from Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Twelve...

The Illusionist

5th February 2007 -

Walking Tall (2004)

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Ironically, Walking Tall runs short. Credits included, the testosterone opera two-fists its way through 77 sweat-soaked minutes, and it's just enough. You won't be hungry for seconds by the time the last baddie hits the...

Knockaround Guys

8th March 2005 -

 Movie Review

In a reasonably fresh twist on the organized-crime genre, "Knockaround Guys" is a post-Tarantino-styled slick flick about a quartet of pampered gangsters' sons trying to prove their worth as wiseguys."To regular people we're stone f**ing...
