Being a documentary, this series offers a representation of what goes on behind glamorous Hollywood curtains. These directors have to work through multiple retakes and scripts to make the actors perform what they truly want. 

After working tirelessly on their movies, they can’t help but hope that their movie ends up doing well at the Box Office. Although most of the directors featured on the show have had several great hits to their name, the case has not always been the same.

The Directors Season 8 Episode 2: Recap

The previous episode, which was aired on January 12th, 2023, featured the story of Stephen Soderbergh. He is known as the director behind all-time hits like Ocean’s trilogy movies, Contagion and Magic Mike. Soderbergh first took an interest in film and cinema when he tried to make a movie using his 8 & 16-mm cameras.

He worked as a freelance movie clip editor, which provided him with much more film knowledge. It was only in the year 1989 that he found work as an actual director for the movie Sex, Lies and Videotape. This ended up gaining much appreciation from critics and led to him winning a Palme d’Or. 

The highs are followed by the lows, as after this great debut, Stephen’s next movies just weren’t able to impress critics and audiences alike. Such movies were Kafka, where Soderbergh wasn’t able to capture true Kafkaesqueness. Another movie was King of The Hill, which was well-received by the critics but not by the viewers.
