Steven Soderbergh saw this film as a conscious decision on his part, to climb out of the arthouse ghetto. He had to do a film like this, because half the business was still off-limits to him. See more »
When the cars turn in at the mansion towards the end of the movie the snow appears to be foam. Also when they step out of the vehicles outside the mansion the snow is obviously foam. See more »

Well, I don't know. You can't do three falls and say you have much of a brain.

"Out of Sight" was one of the best movies of 1998, and yet it was ignored by moviegoers. I am amazed that most of George Clooney's movies fail, with the exception of "Batman and Robin" all of his films have been good. This film has good performances from a talented cast and great direction from an original story by Elmore Leonard. Highly reccomended.
