What did you think of The Limey? I adored Out of Sight, but can't bring myself
to watch Erin Brokovich. The Limey I also liked, though I haven't seen Terrence
Stamp's earlier work (or Peter Fonda's) that the film references. There is a
good article about Soderbergh in last week's New York Times (I think). About
isolation and falling back on oneself being the common thread running through
his disparate works (Traffic included). very nice.

Sorry! I know I've been hard on poor li'l ol' Erin. The film just did
not work for me in so many ways, but I respect that it worked for you
and for other people on this list, no doubt.

Limey, Jos! I thought that was an interesting part of the film.
General Zod? Who he?
