Steven Soderbergh is known as much for his Oscar winning tense dramas as he is retiring… then not retiring. He was a part of the indy revolution in the 1980s and 90s that helped usher in a new case of writers and directors who didn’t play by the rules of the Hollywood system. He’s also known for making quirky and emotionally potent small films. In this episode of Crash Course Film Criticism, we’ll look at one of his smaller films. It’s called The Limey and it’s about a British lifetime criminal seeking revenge for the death of his daughter.
