The likable pairing of George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez is the main reason for watching this romantic caper that kickstarted both film-star's careers for good. Violence, comedy and sex mixes together wonderfully in a fun "cat and mouse" story sparkled with smart dialogue and charming actors.
esta la había visto antes en la tv y no entendía porqué me parecía tan simpática jeje saber que era de soderbergh me ayudó a entender. tiene unos planos que me parecen tan humorísticos, pero de una forma super sutil y piola y sensual. ACABBBB me gusta el detallito de que finalmente la paca no podia ser otra cosa más que una chica policía
This is the best Tarantino film that wasn't directed by Tarantino himself. Soderbergh does Tarantino better than all the other imitators out there and almost better than the man himself. Clooney and Lopez are spectacular as they play off of each other beautifully showing off what makes them great. They also have a great supporting cast of Soderbergh and Tarantino regulars who make this one cool film.
Out of Sight: the emblematic film of a late-90s popular culture. There is an engagement w/ pulp which involves great dexterity and the retention of commendable artistry. There is also a very sly dialogue at work (under the sheets) regarding what movie stars at this point had become for us, and about how we desire to see them deployed. Keaton's return as Ray Nicolette one year later is a great moment in postmodernity.
Oscar nominated script by Scott Frank from the Elmore Leonard novel was superb but it was the sexual chemistry between J. Lopez and G. Clooney that made this film just sing. Exceptionally well cast with great turns from Cheadle, Farina, Zahn, Brooks and Washington as well. Sizzling hot with memorable camera work by Elliot Davis too. 'You wanted to tussle, we tussled' 'do you ever wear one that says undercover'
this is a perfectly fine crime movie, slightly ruined by the fact that i just finished the book. elmore leonard's easy-breezy dialogue becomes "banter" in the mouth of george clooney, and the warm-hearted dignity he affords to even the lowliest of minor characters is occasionally sacrificed in favor of broad laughs (ugh, steve zahn). the romantic stuff works though, and j-lo is better than you might expect.
Soderbergh does Elmore Leonard. It works. It is very interesting to contrast this one to Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" as they are both Leonard stories adapted by contemporaries of the Sundance Institute. But the feel is drastically different. Soderbergh goes for a noir feel more akin to Leonard's work. It has a story that is layered and well told, the performances aren't bad either. A good relaxing mystery.
