Movie of the Week Pt. 2: Inside Man


Probably one of the best Spike Lee joints in awhile (I reckon since 25th Hour.)

But, damnit Spike, can you do ONE movie with out the trademark rolling track shot?

I know it’s your thing but at this point, you are just doing it just to do it. The one in this film was kinda pointless.

Anyway, back to the movie…it’s always great to see a movie where every actor is someone who’s work you appreciate so to see Jodie Foster, Denzel Washington and Clive Owen face off is a dream.

As far as the plot goes, it a combination of Dog Day Afternoon, The Usual Suspects and…Quick Change.

And of course, even with a heist film, Spike had to drop some social commentary.
