I wouldn't be surprised if he's just doing these edits for his own edification and releasing them to the public because, he figures, why not?

I figured this too. More than fan edits, it's like music fans who re-do or salvage "lost" albums and post the results on the web (like completing SMiLE or trying to make a Let It Be that's faithful to the band's original intentions). Even if sharing was impossible, fans would still be doing these sort of projects for themselves.

Am I imagining things, or is the PQ of the Soderbergh edit better than anything currently available on home video?

Does anybody know anything about if/when there'll be a Blu-ray release of Solaris? As far as I can tell almost everything else he's done has been released on Blu-ray. The Limey is the only other one I can think of right now that's also not on BD.

Kafka, Schizopolis, and The Good German are all unavailable on BD (as far as I know)

Wonder what's going to happen to The Knick if Soderbergh is making movies again, and has to work that shooting schedule around the show? That's assuming Cinemax accepts the 4 year renewal proposal.

I was of the understanding that he wouldn't be directing the show anymore. [Caution, spoilers]

It’ll be on HBO Now. Through the website they’ll be able to follow whoever they choose to see and the story changes drastically between whose perspective you wish to see it through. It’s going to be incredible.

Interesting, kind of a larger-scale version of the Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby

I was thinking that film von Trier and a bunch of his friends did about a decade back across several television stations. It also might be a bit informed by Twixt.

i once worked on a choose your own adventure short film designed for DVD that would use seamless branching to select story options, it is tricky to script, but a novel experience for the consumer once. Realistically, you can't offer very many "choose a or b" events in the experience and you try to overlap some of the third tier choices to result in the same fourth tier story lines so that as the story is drawing to a close it is shrinking the possible outcomes in the story grid and only a handful of ending points are needed.

And now Soderbergh finally clarifies Mosaic a little; an interactive app version will be released in the fall (presumably, like he said, in November), then a different, shorter version (apparently with material not used for the app version) will air as a six-hour TV series on HBO in January.

Anyone else gotten into Mosaic?

After coming to terms with watching it on my phone, I really started enjoying it. My OCD didn't really allow me to follow one independent strand all the way through without feeling the need to double back and watch everything I hadn't selected, but I guess that's exactly what this format allows for, so there's no real wrong way through it all. Still, I'm not totally sure why this needed to be an iOS app instead of just, like, a website?

But regardless, I found it to be a hugely gripping, engrossing crime story that absolutely justified its branching narrative structure and I'm so glad HBO took a gambit on releasing it this way. Soderbergh and screenwriter Ed Solomon even slightly tweak the style of each segment to the specific characters - an amateur detective character gets a noir-y VO, a mentally unhinged character starts hearing voices, etc. And Soderbergh seems as effortlessly in command of the pacing and visuals here as he was in The Knick. As happy as I am to see him return to feature films, I'm really loving his approach to longform narrative and I hope we get another Mosaic in some form or other. Very curious to see how the upcoming, re-edited linear version on HBO plays out!

About how long did it take you to finish Mosaic pzadvance? Initially I was just going to wait for the linear miniseries to air, but this interview with Soderbergh really piqued my curiosity about the branching version. I'm just curious how much of a time commitment it would be. I assume it's comparable to the 6 hour series?

It depends what you mean by "finish." Some of the branches are longer than others but most paths shouldn't take more than a few hours (definitely less than 6). It took me a few days of on-and-off watching to finish up the segments I hadn't seen but even then it's not that huge of a time commitment.

I'm looking forward to revisiting it when the HBO version airs and seeing what his cut is like. I need to spend some time and write down some in-depth thoughts but I enjoyed it a lot. pzadvance is spot-on about how effortlessly in command Soderbergh is here. Plus there's a scene where Garrett Hedlund (who is fantastic in this role) and the guy who plays Barrow in The Knick talk about their favorite Mobius comics and talk shit on the Incal so it's worth it for that alone!

I watched an "episode" or two most nights before going to bed and finished in a couple weeks, but I think I read somewhere there's about 7.5 hours of material in the app all told, so not too far off from the upcoming HBO series. I'm most curious about the repeated indications that the HBO version will include footage not used in the app!

Personally, I'd recommend diving into the app and seeing how you react to it. If you aren't turned off by the phone-sized screen, it's quite a unique experience.
