Retire? Really?

The buzz today involves Steven Soderbergh's decision to "retire" from the film industry after completing production on his latest two films. I must say that the decision to retire from the film industry baffles me. How does one actually retire from entertainment all together? Stop accepting projects? Do nothing but watch other people have ideas? Soderbergh states that part of the decision lies with the general workflow of film production. However, part of the decision may also lie with the fact Soderbergh recently had to come clean about fathering a child while separated from his wife. With Jay-Z "retiring" from rap and Michael Jordan "retiring" from basketball, I say put your money where your mouth is, Soderbergh.

Happy Filmmaking.
