This concluding chapter acknowledges that there is no single analysis of Soderbergh's extensive oeuvre, as the prolific filmmaker has continued to make several more films at the time of this book's writing. Suffice it to say that given the complex, varied, multifaceted, and highly unpredictable nature of Soderbergh's body of work, this book remains but an insufficient exploration into the possibility of a grand, unifying narrative of Soderbergh's films. Rather, this book is more accurately described as an overview of American cinema, with Soderbergh as an entry point. Yet despite the persisting issues of cinematic scholarship herein, Soderbergh's films continue to provide extensive ground for study — such as in his recent forays into digital films — as the most reliable definition of his films seem to be their provocative nature.
