I went with Out of Sight.  The Limey and Traffic are also great choices.  I also enjoyed Ocean's Eleven, and Bubble and Schizpolis were interesting.  Ocean's 12 and 13 were blah, and Erin Brockovich was okay but forgettable.

Question:  Which to see first of the ones I've missed:

King of the Hill, Kafka, The Good German, or Underneath?

I really loved Kafka, which I think was underrated.

Seems I'm not alone in not liking Soderbergh all that much.

At the start of the last decade he was a director to not miss.
At the end, he became one to avoid.  The Good German really tipped my opinion to the other side, and his approach to Che sealed it.

King of the Hill is my favorite Soderbergh film.

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