Theatrical Release Poster

Solaris, (DVD), 2003, directed by Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Ocean’s Eleven), with George Clooney (Ocean’s Eleven and others), Natascha McElhone, Jeremy Davies, Viola Davis. The planet Solaris holds some surprises, as the psychologist Dr. Chris Kelvin, played by George Clooney, finds on his arrival to the spacecraft orbiting this mysterious globe. Dreams, wishful thinking, faulty memories, resurrection, murder, hope, fear and very nice special effects move this lightly futurist thriller along at a nice pace. Clooney is great, Natascha McElhone attractively confused, Davies unnervingly twitchy, Viola Davis solid, scientific and unsympathetic. Is Solaris a lightly veiled religious allegory or just fun? You decide. The original story was written by the speculative fiction (SF, science fiction, to some even sci-fi) great, Stanislaw Lem, in 1961. (PR)
