I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Soderbergh apparently hates that film.
He can hate it all he wants, I really like it.

I like it too, but I certainly understand why he doesn't.
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

Forrest Gump

The backlash against this movie is so stupid. It's brilliant. And say, isn't this by the guy who made BttF? What ever happened to that guy?

Is it a backlash if I hated it when I saw it in the theater in 1994 and have never had a desire to revisit it?*

*But I will, eventually, as part of my epic Best Picture marathon.

Hmmm, what are your reasons/his reasons I mean? I'm not as big of a Sodie fan as you are, so your insight here would be appreciated.

I don't remember Soderbergh getting real specific about his disappointment in the work he did on The Underneath and generally in the period between sex, lies and Schizopolis. Mostly, though, I think he probably feels like he was starting to phone everything in, especially by taking projects he wasn't passionate about. Soderbergh really wanted his second film to be Quiz Show, and when Robert Redford took that away from him (long story short) he began a period of filmmaking that was devoid of passion and creative interest. That didn't reemerge until the renaissance that was Schizopolis, his first masterpiece. The Underneath certainly isn't a bad film, but I think Soderbergh's touch is noticeably more distant.
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

I woke up, turned on my computer, saw this post and suddenly I knew it was going to be a good day.  :)
