Don't Blow It

More rainy Sunday melancholy- Steven Soderbergh's remake of Solaris is so jam-packed with face-punching symbolism it takes my breath away. There's a shot in this scene that caused me not only to reassess this film, but to reassess an entire 180,000-word manuscript I wrote on scifi film. I know I should prefer the Russian version. but I've never been able to sit through it all. And technically, this remake should be called the James Cameron/Steven Soderbergh remake, since so many of the concepts put forth in the film belong to Cameron.
