A sexually repressed woman's husband is having an affair with her sister. The arrival of a visitor with a rather unusual fetish changes everything.
Watch Margaret Pomereranz and David Stratton debate the merits of Steven Soderbergh's Palme d'Or winning Sex, Lies, and Videotape on a 1989 episode of The Movie Show.
Margaret loved it, and found "something that is intensely interesting for most of us yuppies".
David? Not that impressed. "I was disappointed. I think it's been overhyped and I can't understand why p-eople rave about it the way they do."
Watch their review above, and here's interview with Soderbergh from the Cannes Film Festival :
