  1. lina maj's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    (3.5) I found the four main characters and the relaxed pace of the movie extremely lovable, yet the grand finale was sadly so-so.

  2. Shahin Katila's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

  3. camilla r.'s rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

  4. Harriehhh's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    That Cliff Martinez score is a wonderful accompaniment to Soderbergh's skilful direction, but Spader's performance is the highlight. He balances his role with a subtle creepiness and charm that is immediately alluring and impossible to divert your attention from.

  6. SiIencio's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    Soderbergh The Provocateur, with a catchy title but a hollow plot, sneakily crawls through the film pretending to be telling us something, pretending to know what he is saying. But, alas, what at some point may have looked like a Freudian essay where Oedipus & Electra meet at opposite sides of a super8 camera turns out to be a poor version of a pedestrian adulterous rambling, completely inconsequential and very dull.

  7. Pango's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    Very intimate, sharp dialogues, great acting. Loved every second of it.

  8. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    I cannot express how powerful I found this film. Gorgeous camerawork, beautiful minimalist soundtrack from Cliff Martinez, organic yet consistently interesting dialogue and superbly underplayed acting, it is philosophical and confrontational and patient, and I love it to bits.

  9. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    A bit more difficult nowadays to view as the indie hit it was on initial release, Sex, Lies, And Videotape still does a good enough job, mainly thanks to great performances from James Shader, Laura San Giacomo, Peter Gallagher, and (wtf?) even Andie MacDowell.

  10. Ariel Rowan's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    i really loved james spaders energy in this and the tablecloth dress and plant !

  11. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    You can hear yourself in all the truths and lies uttered by these characters. Where the auteur style was probably very fresh in 1988, it's a style that now dominates most sit-coms and good dramas on the likes of Netflix. So atmospherically, it's not mind-blowing. But it's still important.

  12. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    ending kind of disappoints, but who cares. SEXY script, nice characters, great pacing. fav

  13. anacecil's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    Muy buena actuación !!! una mujer viviendo en el aburrimiento de un matrimonio, se envuelve en una extraña relación.

  14. unearthly_red's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    4 stars because i didn't expect this to be anything good at all, but it's actually quite well done (but damn james spader has dumb hair)

  21. Ethan's rating of the film sex, lies and videotape

    Soderbergh's debut film gave the white privileged a movie filled with angst they could relate to. This is basically the Easy Rider for the yuppies of the late 80s. They finally had their movie.
