Soderbergh Takes 'Sequel' to Theaters

The Sundance Film Festival is known for trumpeting fresh, new filmmakers. Directors Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderbergh are two of the biggest names to benefit from exposure at the Park City, Utah festival. This year, Soderbergh is there helping promote Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take 2.5, the sequel to a film that's nearly 40 years old. Pat Dowell delves into the making of the original film, a film-within-a-film premise, and its follow-up.
