THE LIMEY (1999) *** ½

Stylish, moody, and well acted, this flick is a must for fans of 60’s revenge thrillers. When Terrance Stamp finds out his daughter has been murdered, he flies to the States to kill the man who did it (Peter Fonda). While the plot is pretty standard, Soderbergh’s approach is not. He fuels the film with 60’s touches, like the casting of Stamp and Fonda (who are both excellent), and the great soundtrack (The Who’s The Seeker is put to good use over the opening credits). He also uses scenes from Ken Loach’s 1967 flick, Poor Cow, featuring a younger Stamp as flashbacks. With Luis Guzman and Leslie Ann Warren. Soderbergh did Erin Brocovich next.
