    The Limey

    ★★★★★

    Following up Soderbergh’s Erin Brockovich with one of my favs of Soderbergh. I needed more comfort food. Terrance Stamp and Peter Fonda go head to head in a simple but stylized revenge murder mystery. I remember showing all my friends this film as an introduction to independent film. The editing is on point, it creates a fever dream of sorts. It’s darkly violent and humorous. Stamp is the ultimate badass. The soundtrack and score definitely helps. This is so satisfying on all levels.

    Texas. As @Not Anna Faris told me, this is a love letter to Texas (check out her fabulous review!). We both successfully went and graduated? (Jk we failed out, it was sorta my fault) from UT where Linklater (and Wes Anderson) studied film. In this movie Texas Tech is king.

    There are great Texas references such as Tech/UT, Deep in…

    This is one of the classics that I’ve always meant to see but never did. I’ll get to all the classics eventually, maybe 😁. So many movies so little time. My film journey is kind of a perfect comparison of the Sisyphean battle that Serpico experienced, always trying but never getting anywhere. Serpico doesn’t know who he can trust, how he’s going to accomplish anything, or if he ever will. Police corruption surrounds the “one honest cop” in many districts he…
