Sex, Lies and Celluloid: Steven Soderbergh’s 8 Best Films
The Limey (1999)
Hell hath no furry like one very pissed off Terence Stamp. The Limey, with its linear-narrative-be-damned structure and gritty subject matter, centers on Stamp’s character – a London crook – who travels to LA to get revenge for the death of his daughter. Soderbergh experiments with structure and editing in such a way that is both refreshing and taxing; but that’s part of The Limey’s charm. It’s more than a throwback to Lee Marvin/1960s crime thrillers – it’s a movie that the era wished it made.
