Tell him I’m coming! In Steven Soderbergh’s tough & stylish neo-noir, a volatile, recently released English ex-con (Terence Stamp) heads to Los Angeles to investigate the suspicious circumstances surrounding his daughter’s death, ready for retribution against anyone responsible. As the bodies pile up and the clues come in, he’ll put together the pieces to discover the truth. Soderbergh and his editor Sarah Flack use a variety of unexpected editing techniques and flashbacks to layer the story and craft a unique & moody mystery, while a stellar cast features the incendiary Stamp, Lesley Ann Warren, Luis Guzmán, and Peter Fonda.
