‘sex, lies, and videotape’ restored from 4k transfer for Blu-ray release [Updated]

sex, lies, and videotape criterion blu-ray new package artCriterion Collection has restored the breakthrough film sex, lies, and videotape from a new 4k digital transfer for release on Blu-ray Disc. The Oscar-nominated indie from director Steven Soderbergh is presented in 1080p at 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio with a 5.1 DTS‑HD Master Audio surround sound audio track.

Along with previously-released bonus content the new Blu-ray edition features a new conversation with composer Cliff Martinez, new documentary about the making of the film, and new program by Soderbergh with responses to questions sent in by fans. Extras also include a deleted scene, trailers, interviews with director Steven Soderbergh from 1990 and 1992, and audio commentary from 1998 with Soderbergh.

The director-approved edition of sex, lies, and videotape from Criterion Collection will release to stores on July 10 17, 2018. The release carries an MSRP of $39.99 but is available to pre-order from Criterion for $31.96 or Amazon for $27.37.


With his provocative feature debut, twenty-six-year-old Steven Soderbergh trained his focus on the complexities of human intimacy and deception in the modern age. Housewife Ann (Andie MacDowell) feels distant from her lawyer husband, John (Peter Gallagher), who is sleeping with her sister (Laura San Giacomo). When John’s old friend Graham (a magnetic, Cannes-award-winning James Spader) comes to town, Ann is drawn to the soft-spoken outsider, eventually uncovering his startling private obsession: videotaping women as they confess their deepest desires.
