The Underneath Reviews

Pulp Fiction fresh.

Too chaotic to work as a thriller.
February 13, 2001
What The Underneath lacks is the kind of emotional connection that the best film noirs have. Instead of involving, this film is distancing, too given to admiring its own shiny surface.

Why did Soderbergh want to remake an old film noir, anyway? Take out the crime elements and flesh out the human elements here, and you have a more interesting movie, I think.

The film may turn out to have been more of a stylistic adventure for the director than for an audience.
January 1, 2000
Downbeat, laconically funny, arty (maybe a touch too arty), it's simmering, smoldering lowlife fun, like a good episode of Twin Peaks without the self-conscious weirdness.
January 1, 2000
A departure from the run-of- the-mill thriller.
January 1, 2000
A diverting piece of moviemaking, thanks primarily to fine direction by Soderbergh.

As tales of sex and sinfulness go, Soderbergh's fourth film doesn't deliver.
