MOVIE: Inside Man

Wish I had seen this on The Big Screen. It was strongly engaging, intense at times, and surprisingly clever in the light of some of its tried-and-tested theatrical techniques.

I was particularly fond of the subtle mix of racism, power, gender-conflict, and politics. It all went down fairly smoothly with very little elements threatening to ruin my willing suspension of disbelief.

Inside Man had all my favorite characteristics: good writing, good directing, great pacing, fantastic acting, and an ending that I did not see coming.

Well worth renting. To say more would diminish its impact upon future viewers.
