Inside Man, directed by Spike Lee is an insanely clever movie and it is one of those open-ended films which encourages you to choose a side and come up with your own theories on who is right and who is wrong. It almost follows the same vein of Rashomon and is like a modern re-telling of Dog Day Afternoon or at least that's how I saw it. It's an impressive movie to boot with a great cast and great ... read more

Denzel Washington does a great job of portraying the lead detective charged with negotiating with bank robbers holding a large group of hostages who hide their true intended targets in ambiguity so as to keep the police off balance.
The hostage takers' actions appear on the surface to be different than the interpretation that the police initially ascribe to them. The situation is further c... read more

At this point, Spike Lee must be one of the directors with the worst reputation in the business nowadays. I mean, it has been ages since he has made a movie which was either successful at the box-office or critically heralded. Basically, he is now more famous because of the way he constantly argues with everyone than for his actual work. His next movie would be one of the most vilified remakes eve... read more

“At this point, Spike Lee must be one of the directors with the worst reputation in the business nowadays.

Basically, he is now more famous because of the way he constantly argues with everyone than for his actual work. His next movie would be one of the most vilified remakes ever made (‘Oldboy’) and his following feature will be apparently financed with a kickstarter campaign and all this doesn’t make me think that it will get better for good old Spike anytime soon. Personally, I always had a weak spot for his work (‘Do the right thing’ was simply a masterpiece) and this movie was his last financial and critical success. First of all, there was a really nice ca” read more

“Denzel Washington does a great job of portraying the lead detective charged with negotiating with bank robbers holding a large group of hostages who hide their true intended targets in ambiguity so as to keep the police off balance.

The hostage takers' actions appear on the surface to be different than the interpretation that the police initially ascribe to them. The situation is further complicated by the fact that the hostages are ordered to undress and put on clothes and masks that make them indistinguishable from the criminals.

Clive Owen does a good job as the criminal master mind although we don't get to see his face much as he is masked in most sequences.

If you're in the mood for a good movie about a bank heist that isn't totally predictable, I would” read more

Brilliant Con Job



When two time Oscar nominated director Spike Lee decides to try his hand in a heist thriller, rest is assured that it would be more than ordinary stuff we get to see & hell it is something. First he gets an awesomely written script by Russell Gewirtz and the cast is adorable. It is quite obvious from the set up itself that there will be comparisons with Dog Day Afternoon and how clever Lee is, he uses the reference in the film itself. Let me use that connection once more, I think this is the best heist thriller post Dog Day Afternoon and that is only similarity these two films have got.

Let's get back to this insanely clever film. I mean it is packed with surprises after surprises. First it starts with a Hindi (Indian) song from the Oscar Winner Indian Musician A.R Reh” read more

“Inside Man, directed by Spike Lee is an insanely clever movie and it is one of those open-ended films which encourages you to choose a side and come up with your own theories on who is right and who is wrong. It almost follows the same vein of Rashomon and is like a modern re-telling of Dog Day Afternoon or at least that's how I saw it. It's an impressive movie to boot with a great cast and great attention to different ethnics and races and the tension-building is unique. Just like Donnie Brasco is a totally different gangster movie and was very fun to watch, Inside Man is exactly the same. It doesn't employ the shoot here, shoot there, I don't care attitude often adopted by a-many bank heist movies. It also has a much deeper story and strikes many allusions to real life, often missed by m” read more
