Opening Shot of Sex, Lies and Videotape – Soderbergh = Ruscha?

Recently I watched the seminal 1989 American indie film Sex, Lies and Videotape. This still is the first image from the movie as Spader’s character drives into a gas station down in Louisiana. I don’t know about you, but it sure as hell looks like an Ed Rushca homage to open your debut film. Well played Mr. Soderbergh. Well played.
