i'm a sucker for soderbergh. it's his fault i like george clooney (have you seen Out of Sight?). sure, Oceans 12 was pretty crap and Oceans 11 was way too generic-heisty and Don Cheadle's pommy accent a disaster but... this is our generations Rat Pack and i've got money to support honest shots at class. maybe this time...
sigh. this looks fine. i've just seen this movie a million time already. can the underdog (whomever) overcome the challenge of (whatever) to win the (who fucking cares?). yes. of course. just once i want to watch one of these movies where the disadvantaged team of colourful youths faces off against the underprivileged jerks only to lose so powerfully that they are fed to rabid weasels. 'cause that's what happens. aren't these movies actually just anti-affirmative action propaganda? nice poster though.
while i can't imagine wanting to watch this film, the short looks well done; it's affecting. sexual slavery is quiet compared to so many other problems but it is seriously fucked up. i like that the leads are young.
*shudder* this is the kind of film that makes me want to shoot fire from my butt. i predict this will be a film in which every single character is constructed around a wholly unbelievable nugget of super powered stupidity so intense it could make tubs of lard appear suave. if you pay to see this i may have to kill you.
