Watch: Steven Soderbergh's 'Candelabra' Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
"They are fearless in their performances." After listening to that State of Cinema speech (which I still love) from Steven Soderbergh, I'm even more intrigued to finally see Behind the Candelabra, his newest film debuting on HBO after premiering at Cannes this month. We've featured teasers and trailers for the film, but now we have a fantastic 12-minute long behind-the-scenes featurette that's must watch for anyone who enjoys the filmmaking process. Not only does it spend plenty of time with Sodebergh, Matt Damon and Michael Douglas, but also Debbie Reynolds, who knew Liberace, and writer Richard LaGravenese. They show a lot of footage in this video, but I'm impressed with the focus on the making of side of things.
