Soderbergh in Films and Filmmakers Posted May 28, 2007 I wouldn't say genius. Julia Roberts won the Oscar on her own merits. I do like some of his films though. Traffic was good and The Limey was good too. He does have an interesting style. I found Out of Sight to be a bit dry, and his remake of Ocean's Eleven doesn't hold up to the original so I've never really bothered to watch the sequels. I probably will someday but they're not top of my list. I think he is a very good filmmaker, I just wouldn't go so far as to call him genius. I'm sure others will disagree with me, that's just my thoughts on the subject. Who knows, perhaps someday he'll make a movie that I think is the greatest ever and changes my opinion but then the same could be said about most filmmakers.
