Director Steven Soderbergh became the poster boy for independent cinema in the early ‘90s with sex, lies, and videotape, which made him the youngest director to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes at 26. His career floundered through most of the decade, until 1998 when he released an adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel with two little-known actors named Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney. Out of Sight was a massive hit and set Soderberg up as major studio director with future films like Ocean’s Eleven and Magic Mike. However, Soderbergh immediately followed up this hit the next year with a little seen Hollywoodland drama called The Limey. Starring Terence Stamp as an ex-con from the across the pond looking for answers after the death of his daughter, the film failed to find any green at the box office. But does The Limey stand out as a hidden gem of ‘99, or does it leave a sour taste in our mouths?
