Trivia

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 »

Great Movie
15 February 2000 | by (california) – See all my reviews

"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.
