The GIFs Underneath


How did I not know about this movie? I like Soderbergh’s films, and neo-noir is right up my alley. Yet I never heard of it until Groom mentioned it in his Criss Cross post.

My wife wondered why everything was green. I suggested maybe he was a Hulk. But green is the color of money, and the color of envy, and greed and jealousy play major roles in the story. Notice the slash of red across this guy’s throat. He doesn’t make it.

Here we have a nice romantic scene where our anti-hero is making out with his doom. Something about the scene felt creepy and Alien to me, the way they’re devouring each other.

A big part of noir is the sense of style. Soderbergh and his cinematographer have it in spades.
