sex, lies, and videotape

I just watched a recording of sex, lies, and videotape. I originally saw the movie years ago in its theatrical release and wanted see if it was as good as I remembered. All in all, I would say that it is. I found the plot interesting and the acting great. I still find something odd about Peter Gallagher, but I think this is true in anything I see him in.

It was interesting to see the role lies play in the sex lives of the characters. It was even interesting to see the perspective of the character that videotapes interviews with women about their sex lives, because he can't actually become aroused in the presence of women any longer.

One thing that I didn't remember about the movie was the use of sound and music to enhance the mood of the moment. Written and directed by Steven Soderbergh, it is cool to see what he was going in 1989 before his popular breakout with Erin Brockovich in 2000.

This is an interesting movie for those that aren't squeamish about characters talking about sex. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 85.
