A good movie

Honestly, it has been a while since Steven Soderbergh has made something really amazing but his works still remains really interesting. Furthermore, if I recall it correctly, this movie was chosen by Roger Ebert as one of the best movies coming out in 2005, so I was definitely eager to watch this flick. Eventually, it turned out to be one of the most experimental movies directed by Soderbergh and ... read more

Description: Chubby, middle-aged Martha (Debbie Doebereiner) and twentysomething slacker Kyle (Dustin James Ashley) work in a drab doll factory, molding and assembling rubber doll parts, passing dreary lunch-hours with small talk and clinging to modest dreams that will never come true. When an attractive single mother named Rose (Misty Dawn Wilkins) is hired as a temporary employee, Martha's secretly possessive affection for Kyle is silently challenged, leading to an act of violence that obliterates their daily routine. In dramatizing this passive love triangle, Soderbergh (serving, under pseudonyms, as his own cinematographer and editor) em ... (more)

"Wow, this is a difficult movie to critique. I think Soderbergh is so cool, with his experimentations. Here he enlisted non-actors for all the roles, using very little scripted dialogue."

"First viewing - Dec. 14th Soderbergh is hit or miss with me usually, so when his name popped up I immediately lowered my expectations. While he certainly has a knack for making films that seem true-to-life regardless of who is cast in them, his tendency to do so mostly falls flat with me. Perhaps if he didn't do it so often it'd be less bothersome, but forgive me if I'd rather watch a movie I can get lost in the experience of than something that SHOULD be a movie but feels more like a documenta"

Eventually, it turned out to be one of the most experimental movies directed by Soderbergh and it turned out to be a blessing and a curse. Indeed, it is a really realistic, almost documentary-like thriller (or is it a drama?!? I'm not sure...). The acting was provided by some unknowns, I guess amateurs but they were actually really good and perfectly matched the directing style. The main issue for me was that there was barely anything going on during the whole thing and there was always som” read more

" Ha, I had a big silly smile on my face throughout much of this movie. Not sure if that was Soderberg's intent, but the characters and natural acting was a dose of simple joy- especially Martha. I was actually a little bummed out that the movie was so short; I'd have gladly watched her on screen for another hour. "
