The Limey (1999)

★★★½ Watched 17 Oct 2021

Interesting approach to the revenge crime drama highlighted by inventive unconventional editing and Terrence Stamp’s uncompromisingly British performance underlined with heavy Cockney accent. 

This is director Soderbergh’s early low-budget guerrilla-style films with well-known and experienced actors. 

A story about a fresh out of prison father coming to investigate the sudden death of his estranged daughter is very straightforward but told in a quite unusual way through the back and forward flashes. 20 years ago must have felt considerably more original and inventive although it kept the strangeness and a memorable performance of the titular character.
