The Limey

1999 / 89min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: STEVEN SODERBERGH

CAST: TERENCE STAMP, LUIS GUZMáN, PETER FONDA, LESLEY ANN WARREN, JOE DALLESANDRO

Career criminal Stamp lands in Los Angeles to ferret out his daughter’s murderers, and God help whoever stands in his way. With excerpts of Poor Cow, jigsaw puzzle editing gambits that recall John Boorman’s Point Blank (1967), Peter Fonda as a Big Sur-based ex-hippie-ish heavy, and Stamp returning to his East London roots, The Limey has all the elements of a pure throwback, but manages at the same time to feel bracingly turn-of-the-millennium. An elegant and deadly object.

The Limey is screening as part of the series Terence Stamp.
