lip services for "Sex, Lies"

Film A.O. Scott tries to confer auteur status on Steven Soderbergh ...
"There is a tension within “Solaris,” for example, between the austerity and abstraction of the European art-cinema tradition where its roots lie and the Hollywood genres of romantic melodrama and spaceship adventure toward which it is drawn. And there is an even deeper split within “Che” — between procedural rigor and political romanticism, or perhaps between the discipline of guerrilla filmmaking and the demands of the historical biopic."
... though despite lip services for "Sex, Lies" Scott totally ignores anything pre-Schizopolis. And Schizopolis for that matter.
