Steven Soderbergh United States, 2002

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Solaris

Closer to the work of Resnais than Tarkovsky, with its fragments and its ruptures and the sense of time and space as something oppressive or tyrannical bringing to mind the haunted expressions of Hiroshima Mon Amour or Muriel. An aching, claustrophobic film, where the basic elements of Lem's novel are used to construct Soderbergh's most profound meditation on his main theme; the nature of memory and its reflections.
