Example text

The motif of the ex-wife is not just a detail personal to Soderbergh (although it is that, since his ex-wife plays his character’s wife in Schizopolis). 21 The remarriage plot in Soderbergh brings with it the Solaris effect, the present desire and the broken love of the cinephile. In Bazinian terms, the photograph or the film captures the past, and the remarriage plot seeks to recapture the past as well. Soderbergh’s remakes, which are built out of remarriage plots, thus double and treble a Solaris emphasis on film’s haunted desire.

Although Graham is rather pathetic, the movie still takes the masturbating, video-watching loner for its hero, in contrast to the cynical lawyer. Graham’s house is completely empty except for pictures on the wall, a big television, and videotapes. In other words, Graham leads all too literally the mediated life of the cinephile. Soderbergh dramatizes cinematic experience most powerfully when John breaks into Graham’s house to watch the tape that Ann has just recorded. John locks Graham outside his own apartment, then cues up the tape.

But Soderbergh doubles the cinephilic haunting by casting Shelley Duvall as the nurse. Cinephilic recognition entirely shatters the suspense of the scene. For the sake of suspense, Soderbergh should have put no one in particular there, and important parts in the rest of the film are played by unheralded actors. Yet here is Shelley Duvall in a cameo, reminding us in general of the past (she is noticeably elderly) and of particular movies like Robert Altman’s Three Women (1977), in which she plays a nurse.
