Since the beginning of his career, Steven Soderbergh has never walked by the traditional filmmaking path, and after his celebrated Palme d'Or winning debut “Sex, Lies and Videotape," he completely changed the game for this sophomore effort. 1991's "Kafka" is an ambitious and stylized psychological thriller/horror/noir, presented in black-and-white (except for a key color sequence during the middle of the film) that drew harsh reviews, flopped hard upon release and has never been available on DVD in the U.S. And that's too bad because as we wrote in our recent Soderbergh retrospective, "it's a very strong and idiosyncratic piece of work" but has it been consigned to the dustbin of time?
