The Death of the Sixties

Early in Steven Soderbergh’s The Limey (1999), Sixties icon Peter Fonda tries to explain the decade to his young girlfriend while she lounges in the bath and he picks his teeth with a dental stick. As he smacks his tongue into his outsized choppers, he intones: “Have you ever dreamed about a place you don’t really recall being to before?... Some place far away, half-remembered when you wake up. When you were there, though, you knew the language, you knew your way around. That was the Sixties.” And then he adds: “No it wasn’t that either. It was just ’66, and early ’67. That’s all it was.”
