A still, sometimes eerie imitation of life that casts a cold eye over small town paralysis.

Is there another contemporary filmmaker whose work swings as unpredictably between the seductive and the alienating as does Steven Soderbergh's?

Finally got around to seeing this film and was impressed with Soderbergh's experimental style. This guy continues to be one of best directors around today. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Soderbergh artlessly presents America's concealed poverty that drives the paltry ambitions of many of its citizens.

"Bubble" is paced very deliberately, like a slowly dripping faucet. Scenes do not seem to be performed, but rather captured like surveillance videos.

Bubble is an intriguing work for other reasons, though: in some ways, Soderbergh takes us back to his iconic debut, sex, lies and videotape, where realism was the film's most powerful weapon.

Appears at first glance to be either a violent attack on the white working poor, or not aggressive enough in its critique of the cultural degradation of that social class.

Not quite Hitchcock, but a satisfying flick, and proof positive that you don't need a big budget or A-list talent to make a decent whodunit.

Life and death among the working poor. Critics hated it because it lacked entertainment value. That's more of a condemnation of them than the film.

Bubble is best considered as a failed-but-occasionally-nifty experiment.

The local atmosphere, filmed on the Ohio-West Virginia border, is rigorously authentic and so is the cast, none of whose members have acted before.

The film is called Bubble, but it represents the first time in ages Steven Soderbergh has worked outside of his personal territory.

Versatile director Steven Soderbergh leaves the bright lights of Las Vegas far behind for this quiet, stark tale of friendship and murder in a small Midwestern town.

Fascinante estudo de personagens, Bubble não é um filme marcado por ações, mas por sutilezas.

Soderbergh simply displays ordinary people as they are and challenges us to determine why smiles become rare blips on the blue-collar radar.

There is an admirable rigor to Soderbergh's technique here, but it leads to a generally unsatisfying experience.

February 27, 2006

Sans être son effort le plus créatif à ce jour, Bubble demeure une entrée courageuse dans la filmographie d'un réalisateur si bien ancré dans le paysage hollywoodien.
