Cinemakers: Steven Soderbergh #057 – High Flying Bird (2018)
It’s been a while since we covered a Steven Soderbergh movie on Cinemakers, but he’s been busy! Today, we’re talking about High Flying Bird. Like Unsane, Soderbergh shot the entire thing on an iPhone. We discuss whether or not this works, what we think of his use of natural lighting, and what other ways he may try to shake up Hollywood. We also talk about Soderbergh’s return to the American Dream as narrative fuel, and wonder if any other directors would ever make a movie about basketball with virtually no basketball. Also, stay tuned for an updated/revised schedule for Cinemakers!
