“Bubble” Review

Bubble is Steven Soderbergh’s experimental whodunit film that he describes more accurately as a whydunit. It’s experimental in that he uses real people, non-actors, playing themselves; the characters’ lives are so mundane that even when something out of the ordinary happens, it’s still completely mundane — and one of the most interesting films I’ve ever seen. Its authenticity makes it extremely watchable, not unbearably or depressingly realistic. It’s entertaining, compelling and dramatic — everything you want in a movie, minus the Hollywood. It’s one of my favourite movies from 2005, difficult to find on DVD, but worth looking out for.
