behind the candelabra is steven soderbergh's first film after he retired. and what a retirement it is shaping up to be. this here is one of his best films in years. i guess that can be attributed to hbo and their 'you can do whatever you want' attitude towards filmmaking.
starring matt damon and michael douglas, this film tells the true life love story between scott and liberace. it's a love story that had to remain hidden as liberace came from a time when being gay was ostracizing and would of ruined his career. it's shocking to think no one knew this man was gay. it's like people just turned a blind eye to his gayness.
anyways, this film was stellar. stellar production design and music and acting and costumes and sets and locations and everything. it looked so good. and the 70's looked like the 70's; the80's like the 80's. the acting is amazing from everyone. matt damon gives what i can only call his best performance to date.
but this film is all about michael douglas. that man only gets better with age. just when you think you've seen him do everything his acting powers will allow he comes out with this performance that is equal parts touching, loving and manic. he has never stretched himself so much as an actor and at his age, doing such a difficult role, it is truly mesmerizing.
for two hours behind the candelabra will take you on a journey that is sweet, sad, loveable, funny, charming and heartbreaking. it will take you into dark recesses of a constrained society and it will show you the lengths people will go to be loved and to stay loved. thanks to douglas, damon and soderbegh it will also stay with you long after the film ends which is saying something as a male led gay love story is not an easy sell in todays world.
if this is what retiring looks like then all top notch directors should retire. i can't wait to see what tarantino does in his retirement.
