Inside Man

2006 • dir Spike Lee w/Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Christopher Plummer, Willem Dafoe, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Carlos Andrés Gómez, Kim Director • 129 min • 35mm

This under-rated heist film from Spike Lee features a jazz-influenced score from his greatest secret weapon, composer (and Blue Note artist), Terence Blanchard. As the low-key conflict between Denzel Washington’s beleaguered NYPD detective and smarter-than-thou bank robber Clive Owen unfolds, Blanchard’s cool score helps gives the film the feel of a vintage 60s thriller.

“With Inside Man — an ostensibly straightforward, old-fashioned heist movie — Spike Lee brings together the old New York and the new.”
– Stephanie Zacharek,

“Inside Man is a deft and satisfying entertainment, an elegant, expertly acted puzzler that is just off-base and out-of-the-ordinary enough to keep us consistently involved.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
