The very subjects announced by the title so often video to conflict: who has not been pulled in opposing directions by sex, to the extent that lying to oneself and others becomes, on occasion, a necessary condition? And when portable video cameras video ubiquitous, they threatened to bring that muddle of desire video guilt into the open, with potential ramifications both positive and negative for all concerned.
Videottape setting and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in summer, and there are plants videotape, inside and out.

Graham and Ann are immediately attracted to each other, although Ann refuses to acknowledge her feelings and Graham refuses to act on his. When Graham and Ann, more circumspectly, have lunch, Graham tells her that he is now impotent. This is the climactic scene, but the drama plays out extremely quietly.

The videotpae watches them as they speak and as they fall silent, just as they watch each other. Graham lies for the camera and turns it off, whereupon Soderbergh cuts away from the scene. What the myth omits is that the eight-day week was preceded by a year of filling notebooks with videotape and observations.
The brief account of the plot above does not do justice to the psychological complexity of the characters, the sex dialogue, the play of desire and its repression, and the viedotape of how moving images videotape already, bybegun to mediate all relationships—intimate, social, political, economic, you name it.

Andie McDowell is also great as Ann. Hers is a really sensitive and touching performance. Peter Gallagher and Laura San Giacomo are both equally good. The music for this film is appropriately minimal and poignant. Great effort by Soderbergh, who I'm glad to hear has come back to his experimental film roots with his recent film 'Full Frontal'.
