Overview

Out of Sight is an experience in how to do a DVD right. Featuring a widescreen 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer and Dolby Digital Sound, this DVD has all of the major elements of a great disc. Director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Frank have a good rapport on the commentary track as they discuss the development of the project. Soderbergh also provides an invaluable guide to his thought process and inspiration by discussing his motivations behind the film's unusual editing and cinematography. The disc also features not a quick "making of" featurette, but rather an extensive behind-the-scenes look that is just as interesting as the commentary. Rounding out the list of major features is a deleted scenes reel. While it would have been nice to have them divided by a menu, the quality of the deleted scenes (including the trunk scene as Soderbergh originally envisioned it) makes sitting through the entire reel worthwhile. Also included are trailers and a menu devoted to the music in the film. Out of Sight is an essential disc for any collection and a benchmark for special edition DVDs.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
A superior Elmore Leonard adaptation and critical favorite, Out of Sight (1998) reenergized Steven Soderbergh's directorial career and confirmed George Clooney's and Jennifer Lopez's movie-star quality. With Scott Frank's screenplay sticking closely to the eccentric source, Soderbergh infuses the unlikely connection between charmingly laid-back con Jack Foley and no-nonsense Fed Karen Sisco with a passionately cool romanticism; the intricate flashback structure renders their pairing a dreamy fait accompli even as Jack's line of "work" and comically shady associates accentuate its impossibility. The funky musical vibe and stylish cinematography, replete with velvety nights, bright Florida days, and astutely witty freeze-frames, neatly match the story's shifting moods. Along with the two stars, the gifted ensemble cast -- including Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Dennis Farina, Steve Zahn, Albert Brooks, and Catherine Keener -- is perfectly pitched to Leonard's wry humor; Lopez and Clooney's sultry onscreen chemistry is evident from the moment they meet in a car trunk. Though not a summer bonanza, Out of Sight still became Soderbergh's biggest success since sex, lies and videotape (1989) and won the National Society of Film Critics awards for Best Film, Director and Screenplay over future Oscar darlings Saving Private Ryan and Shakespeare in Love.

    One of my favorite movie

    One of my favorite movie! Great action, and love the pick-up lines between the two main characters.

    Cool, Slick, Smart Crime Thriller

    One of Steven Soderbergh's best films. The dialogue sizzles, as does the chemistry between George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. But the supporting cast is absolutely perfect with Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames, Steve Zahn and Albert Brooks.

    Great Movie

    The chemistry between Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney is steamy and incredible in this movie. They're a great team. This movie is a good action flick as well as a thought-provoking romance. Watch it!

    Okay film. I hate Elmore Leonard's works. I find his books boring and unlively, most of the time corny too. The movies that were made from Leonard's ideas made Leonard great. Stupid, ain't it? Anyway, back to the movie...I was harsh on George Clooney when he had an ill performance in Batman and Robin. Since He made Out of Sight, Perfect Storm, From Dawn to Dusk, and Ocean's Eleven, George Clooney did what Will Smith could never do, the transformation of a tv star into a movie star. I hope he will choose more roles to help him to reach his potential, since I believe he will hit it big with the right roles. Other than that, Jennifer Lopez, as usual, is resplendent but wears off quickly since she only has the beauty of a face and body. If the audience was more than be fascinated about the chemistry between the two couple, the movie is basically flat. A gap here and there comes up. For example, why the hell involve Michael Keaton in the movie since his role had absolutely nothing to do with the story, somewhat yeah contributes to the story but basically in a pointless way. Almost an all star cast here. Soderbergh's reason why he won the best picture for Traffic is because his style improved every film he did. From Sex, Lies, and Videotapes to Out of Sight to The Limey to Traffic, you can see how he experimented the style, what works and what doesn't work. This is an absolutely remarkable observation, granting the fact that he is a perfectionist. I absolutely love Soderberg's style in the film, but it seemed very young of maturity. In Traffic, his style reached its maturity. It is possible the audience will see a full maturity of Soderbergh's style, his ability to make each take stylized in an artistic way. He is an artist. That is why I have this film a 6 because it looked great with a flat story. Samuel Jackson's cameo elevated the movie. Without that, there is no good ending for this one.
