SFFL 2017: Sex, Lies And Videotape

Stephen Soderbergh burst onto the independent filmmaking scene with this savagely funny low budget drama about a group of young, adulterous 30-somethings. Powered by astonishingly raw, realistic dialogue and terrific performances from the likes of James Spader and Andie MacDowell, Soderbergh's film debuted at the 1989 Festival and won the Audience Award, going on to win the Palme D'Or at Cannes in the same year. Something of a protean text for the serious-minded, modern American indie, the film's razor-sharp dialogue, preoccupation with sex and the psyche, as well as its breakout performances, still pack a punch almost 30 years on.
