This has been on my radar for a minute. Soderbergh doing crime, and two of the coolest actors on the planet. In fact it recently got touted by WB as a digital purchase for today (HBO Max jobbie, no mention of Sky) so it's another good sign that HBO Max stuff is coming pretty quickly to Sky here.
And all that, and getting an 8/10 from @Tom Davies. Yup, that's a must-watch right there. Can't wait.
Wordy, convoluted and weird in ending with (what at least nowadays) one winner that should please the woke KBW mob but cause confused disdain for the other.
The fisheye view, to me, is truly odd and more distracting than clever. t's like what period piece works sometimes do in using glass panes with an old style technique that warped views and when it's a moving image, forget about it.
I stayed to the end but didn't feel anywhere near rewarded enough to not still be left somewhat annoyed, by an out of focus talkie that should've aimed for a more concise clarity.
Great to finally see this over here - did wonder if it was going to go theatrical like some other Max features but I think it plays pretty well on the small screen…
That’s being said it’s a little frustrating to get a new Soderbergh when there is still no sight of his previous film Let The All Talk - there’s probably very little reason for it not to have had a VOD release now
Great movie. Soderbergh does this kind of thing extremely well, and always gets a top-notch cast. I agree with criticism of the fish-eye - I know he’s being artistic, and it’s supposed to be unsettling, but it’s overdone imo.
