#984 – Out Of Sight

Thriller

Re-watching Out Of Sight reminded me of just how smart Soderbergh is as a film maker. It isn’t an overly convoluted plot with twists and turns at every moment, it’s just sharp as razor.

The film is helped by Clooney at his suave best as a moderately successfully bank robber, and Lopez, playing it straight as a no nonsense federal officer. Their chemistry is fantastic as their relationship slowly crescendos, perfectly paced through out the runtime. It’s notably helped by three exceptional scenes between the two of them. The first in the boot of a car; the second in a deserted sky high restaurant, which is then immediately followed by the third; one of the coolest sex scenes of the 90s.

Cool, calm and collected.
