• King of the Hill, about a struggling but resourceful preteen (Jesse Bradford) growing up amid the fear and poverty of the Great Depression, is director Steven Soderbergh’s only film to focus on the life of a child. In this clip from a new interview on our release of the film, Soderbergh discusses why he finds films about childhood particularly fascinating and rewarding and muses that the film’s young protagonist might fit right in with some of his other characters.

    Shot in my hometown, Soderbergh perfectly captures an aspect of childhood that reminds one of Truffaut/400 Blows. One only wishes he would stop this nonsense of retirement from films and get back into the business of making them!
