Why emphasise flaws in a film of such overall ambition and expertise?

This cast almost makes The Good German watchable. It's just that their screenwriter and director don't do them any favors.

There's a line between homage and mimicry, and Soderbergh has crossed it.

We get no heroes, not even flawed ones. Clooney, our marquee man, chases through numbing plot contortions only because of his lust for Lena. By the time The Good German ended, I had barely a clue if the good ones had lived or died.

There's a certain distance with which you view the characters, the involvement is not such that they stay with you after the film.

An utterly gaseous film

A beautifully flawed experiment, "The Good German" is an entertaining if unbalanced war drama that places modern cinema mores on a classic style of American film when the Hayes code would never have allowed such overt sexual reality.
