BEHIND THE CANDELABRA

If Behind The Candelabra really is Steven Soderbergh’s cinema swansong – and technically, in the US, the swan had already sung with Side Effects – it was a helluva way to go out. As flamboyant as a Liberace piano flourish and utterly unashamed in its depictions of excess (booze, drugs, plastic surgery, candlesticks, you name it), it played like a period version of The Devil Wears Prada – except in this case, the devil wore diamante. Here director and star Michael Douglas, who’d met Liberace through his father and had knocked Soderbergh out with uncanny impressions of the entertainer during the shoot of Traffic, prepares for a little more Vegas razzle-dazzle.
