sex lies and videotape
“I’m a little concerned by what ‘sex, lies’ might have wrought here,’ said Steven Soderbergh at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival, proving even at 27 to be, aside from a promising filmmaker, an unusually thoughtful and prescient commentator on the wider industry. This was scarcely a year after his debut feature had unassumingly premiered at the festival and irrevocably changed the face of the movie world, and already then the sleepy, retrospectively genteel-feeling festival of yore had unmistakably begun its rapid evolution into the titan it is today; a quick glance at our coverage of this year’s Sundance alone can tell you just how far it’s come, in terms of media profile, business activity, not to mention sheer volume of films.

“Mother’s Day” - wasn’t that a horror film that came out recently starring Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King? You know, it was a remake of that '80s video nasty which featured graphic scenes of rape, violence and murder. What’s that...this is a different “Mother’s Day”...a drama that tells a series of loosely interconnected stories over the course of a day when greeting cards are exchanged. Oh, great.
