The Criterion Collection and Sony Picture Home Entertainment release Steven Soderbergh's debut feature Sex, Lies and Videotape, the provocative Palme d'Or-winning drama that changed the landscape of American film in the modern age.

Steven Soderbergh’s remarkably assured, disarmingly frank debut, was a game-changer for American independent film.

With his provocative feature debut, twenty-six-year-old Steven Soderbergh trained his focus on the complexities of human intimacy and deception in the modern age. Housewife Ann (Andie MacDowell) feels distant from her lawyer husband, John (Peter Gallagher), who is sleeping with her sister (Pretty Woman’s Laura San Giacomo). When John’s old friend Graham (a magnetic, Cannes-award-winning James Spader) comes to town, Ann is drawn to the soft-spoken outsider, eventually uncovering his startling private obsession: videotaping women as they confess their deepest desires. A piercingly intelligent and flawlessly performed chamber piece, in which the video camera becomes a charged metaphor for the characters’ isolation, the Palme d’Or–winning sex, lies, and videotape changed the landscape of American film, helping pave the way for the thriving independent scene of the 1990s.

The director-approved special edition Blu-ray includes a new, restored 4K digital transfer supervised by director Steven Soderbergh, as well as a new interview with Soderbergh, a new documentary about the making of the film featuring the main cast, and a new conversation with composer Cliff Martinez and supervising sound editor Larry Blake, along with the original 1998 director's commentary, a deleted scene with optional commentary, and the original trailers. The package also includes an essay by critic Amy Taubin and excerpts from Soderbergh's on-set production diaries.
