One of the things that I found very cool in this movie was the use of footage from one of Terrence Stamp's early films for flashbacks about his earlier life. I'm sort of surprised that it isn't done more often, with so many actors having a backlog of past films to draw upon.

And this always raises interesting issues about filsm as texts and their permanence (or impermanence) and how a clever director like Soderburgh can do this photo-montage thing and change entirely their initial "meaning."
