Steven Soderbergh संयुक्त राज्य अमरीका, 1999

Addy K.'s rating of the film The Limey

Soderbergh's trademark efficiency in this late 90s gem is all too evident when characters are reduced to their basic essence (Peter Fonda's villain is "evil" because he's devoid of good; Terence Stamp's ex-con from England has only one plan: find the villain, make him suffer, smoke cigarettes). When screenwriter Lem Dobbs pursued Robert Aldrich to direct, he ignored Dobbs. Soderbergh, instead, ennobles his script.
