Sex, Lies, and Videotape

Oh yeah, great film to follow RED SHOE DIARIES with....not only will you want to snuff it, should you fail you'll never date again! Still, a great piece of work and the directorial debut of Steven Soderbergh who would of course go on to become of blockbuster power house. James Spader is once again the star attraction here though kudos have to be given to Laura San Giacomo, Andie MacDowell and even to regular Adam Sandler sidekick Steven Brill in his second big screen appearance. He plays a small part but it gives some much needed comic relief in this dark and dank piece of twisted emotional flotsam without sticking out as the soooooo overused one-liner or token funny guy. Again though, it really is a Spader show and certainly worth digging out for a closer look.
