I was very confused when I came across a sentence in “The body politic” in New York Times (June 28)
Set in Tampa (but also shot in California), a palm-lined wasteland that Mr. Soderbergh has washed in somewhat queasy-ugly bleached orange, the movie opens at the club with the owner-M.C., Dallas (a spectacular, amusingly sleazed-out Matthew McConaughey), running down the rules for the female clientele.
I think "bleached orange" is some kind of color. Wash a wasteland in a color, in a movie, what does that mean? I'm totally confused.
I also failed to find "sleazed-out" in dictionaries. I know sleaze means tastelessness by virtue of being cheap and vulgar. but what does "sleazed-out" mean?
