'Logan Lucky' and the Return of Steven Soderbergh

It's not like Steven Soderbergh simply locked himself in a bunker and ceased communicating with the outside world when he announced his retirement in 2013; the man gave us The Knick for two incredible seasons, and you should never look a gift premium-cable series in the mouth. But we missed having him make the sort of funky, genre-bending movies he specialized in, so the fact that we got Logan Lucky – a goofy caper film that somehow still ran with clockwork precision – felt like we won the lottery. Soderbergh still knows how to pull off well-crafted heist scenes; get great work out of his ensemble cast, though we'll single out Daniel Craig and Riley Keough; and his ability to embed class-consciousness in his entertainment without making it a college-course lecture is still there. His latest, Unsane, hits theaters in March. Welcome back.
