    The Informant and Contagion

    Hold onto your hats kids we're going in. Possibly the most favourite of film combos for the Club, by virtue of the constant laughing, is The Informant! and Contagion. Two very sleek and diametrically opposed films, beginning to wrap up Soderberghs film career on the short slide to retirement. Wigs! germs! What is lysine? Melanie Lynskey! Gwnny's saw open head! It's a cornucopia of great scenes in even better films. Please join us on the couch then head to our social media to discuss. With love, Club Soderbergh.

    Che Part 2 - The Guerilla and The Girlfriend Experience

    In episode 10 of Club Soderbergh, we follow Che Guevara into the wilds of Bolivia on a suicide mission - the brutal and unremitting conclusion to the 2-part Che epic. We then turn our minds to post-GFC America as depicted in The Girlfriend Experience; the film that brought Sasha Grey into the mainstream and us together in admiration of Stephen Soderbergh in the first place. Please connect with us on FB and Twitter @clubsoderbergh to keep the conversation going. Big love from the Sodernerds.

    Oceans 13 and Che - The Argentine

    In this months episode the gang cover the unlikely bedfellows of Oceans 13 and Che - The Argentine. From communist uprising in the jungles of Cuba to fake earthquakes beneath the capitalist desert of Las Vegas, our Director wildly swings from one paradigm to the other. Rich topic matter to be discussed - Don Cheadle's degenerating accent, Al Pacino's terrible toupee, who was the 12th and 13th Ocean? Mid century modern Mexican interior decoration, does capitalism remain the scourge on the modern world? Tune to find out! Please connect with us on FB and Twitter @clubsoderbergh to keep the conversation going. Big love from the Sodernerds.

    Logan Lucky

    The Sodernerds didn't even get half way through our Directors oeuvre before he came out of retirement and opened the fire hose of productivity. We discuss his latest offering in this very special addendum episode of Club Soderbergh. Be sure to listen to our Oceans Eleven/Full Frontal episode first as they are excellent companion pieces. And as always be in touch to let us know what you thought of the film.

    Oceans 11 and Full Frontal

    In this months episode the Sodernerds tackle two films on the extreme opposite ends of our Directors spectrum. Firmly entering 'one for me, one for you' territory we anticipate that our episodes from now on will have very lively discussions about experimentation and the potential tedium of big budgets. Oceans Eleven (the unequivocal hit) goes up against the super experimental, almost Schizopolis remake, Full Frontal. Could so much beautiful man meat turn the ladies off? Could more terrible wigs take up the majority of conversation? Tune in to find out! And don't forget to join the conversation on (Facebook and Twitter) @clubsoderbergh.

    The Underneath and Schizopolis

    In this episode we have come to an interesting crossroads in the early career trajectory of our Director. The Underneath is the film that nearly burned Soderbergh out and Schizopolis is the film that made him fall in love with filmmaking all over again.
