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) - this month 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...

Che Part 2 & The Girlfriend Experience by Club Soderbergh
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...
Solaris and Oceans 12
The team discuss the incredible and very underrated Solaris, whilst scratch their heads at the popularity of Oceans Twelve.
Oceans 11 and Full Frontal
In this months episode the Sodernerds tackle two films on the extreme opposite end 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...
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 (Twitter/Facebook @clubsoderbergh)

Kafka and King of the Hill
What Steven did next...the Soder-bangs look at Soderbergh's slightly confounding second and third films. Both period pieces, but wildly divergent from sex, lies, videotape and totally different from each other. Was he using Hollywood cash to learn filmmaking? Who was cutting Jess Bradford's hair?

Sex Lies Videotape
