Steven Soderbergh shot the initial scene between Karen and Foley in a trunk because he liked the forced intimacy it generated between the two strangers. Before the scene was over, he knew they had spent enough time in each other's heads that the intimacy between them was real now. And that can only lead to love. Which is why the film works.

"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.
