  OK, so I didn't exactly reach deep into the filmography for this one, but ERIN BROCKOVICH is certainly worth a second look as the awards season begins. Much of the media's focus is currently on TRAFFIC, so it's kind of easy to forget that Universal Pictures tucked this one in, all the way back in March. However, as the critics' awards are released, Soderbergh is being recognized for BROCKOVICH as well as TRAFFIC. Critics haven't forgotten about Julia Roberts either, as she's received several Best Actress awards for her performance in the film. What's nice about this film is how accessible it is. If you've never seen a Steven Soderbergh film, but you would like to, this film is a great place to start. And if you are a big Soderbergh groupie (meaning your videotape of SCHIZOPOLIS is worn out from repeated viewings and you stole your copy of KING OF THE HILL from your local Blockbuster), you can relish Soderbergh's ability to turn a possibly ordinary (boring?) film into quality cinema.
