Video Remix: Terence Stamp in Soderbergh's "The Kryptonian"

Steven Soderbergh is an envelope pusher. Always has been. He's also been a video essayist himself in the past. So I thought it'd be appropriate to do a little remix on one of my favorite entries in the Soderbergh canon, his 1999 Terence Stamp-starrer The Limey.

What I did here was reinterpret Stamp's character of Wilson as an older version of General Zod from Superman II. I used the final minutes from The Limey and Soderbergh's jump-cut flashback structure to incorporate moments from Zod's visit to Earth in that 1980 film. It gives the scene a different kind of resonance and reflection.

Watch for yourself.
