Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989)
Steven Soderbergh’s breakthrough cinematic debut is a series of cleverly-written sequences involving interactions between some or all of four very distinct characters. Sex, Lies, and Videotape is a study of how people think they know themselves and how their perspectives can be radically altered through the insights of others.
The cast play their roles to perfection. James Spader shines brightest. His performance earnt him the Best Actor Award at Cannes.
Sex, Lies, and Videotape is an independently-made film whose unprecedented success was instrumental in beginning the 1990s independent film boom. The film cost $1.2m to produce and grossed over $36m at international box offices.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching trailers. The following trailer contains important spoilers. It also makes the film look dated, which it is not.
