Here’s Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2017

     January 5, 2018

It’s time for Steven Soderbergh to put all of us to shame with his multi-tasking habits again. The ever-busy filmmaker keeps a detailed log of everything he watches and reads in a given year, and he’s now released his entire list for 2017. It is, predictably, diverse, and includes films like Passengers and A Cure for Wellness as well as TV shows like Billions, Girls, and The Americans. He also took the time to watch Episode 8 of Twin Peaks twice, and he’s seen nine cuts of Ocean’s Eight already—the spinoff that he produced and that Gary Ross directed.

And while Soderbergh watched two episodes of David Fincher’s series Mindhunter in 2016 (the two filmmakers are buddies so he got an early peek), it appears he binged the whole series like the rest of us when it was released on Netflix in October.

Other things of note: Soderbergh found time for a rewatch of Mad Max: Fury Road as well as Zodiac, went on a spy/thriller tear at the end of the year, and binged all of the new season of Black Mirror in two days. Is it too much to ask for Soderbergh to direct a Black Mirror Season 5 episode?
