20th anniversary appreciation of The Limey via ebert.com - a movie I don't hear talked about often enough, long been one of my favorite Soderberghs.

thank you, xixax, for getting me into this film close to a decade ago (holy shit)

Some probably think the repetion of shots are cheap, and call it cheesy editing, but I find it great; very relaxing.
