Great looking exercise
20 October 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

"Winston" is a terrific looking black and white short Soderbergh shot, and is a sort of dry run of themes which arrived full blown in SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE. Here, the exploration is a little awkward, and the strained relationship isn't quite believable; there's not much chemistry between the characters in the sense that they have a shared history. It's better than a curiosity, however, and most young directors would be pleased to have this as a calling card, however oblique it turns out to be.
