Our next Rialto Recommends is another caper flick that we really like - Spike Lee's 2006 film INSIDE MAN starring Christopher Plummer, Jodi Foster, Clive Owen, Denzel Washington, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Willem Dafoe. A tough detective (Denzel Washington) matches wits with a cunning bank robber (Clive Owen), as a tense hostage crisis is unfolding. Into the volatile situation comes a woman named Madaline (Jodie Foster), a mysterious power broker who has a hidden agenda and threatens to push a tense situation past the breaking point. Spike Lee's energetic and clever bank-heist thriller is a smart genre film that is not only rewarding on its own terms, but manages to subvert its pulpy trappings with wit and skill. Newsweek said "As unexpected as some of its plot twists is the fact that this unapologetic genre movie was directed by Spike Lee, who has never sold himself as Mr. Entertainment. But here it is, a Spike Lee joint that's downright fun." The LA Times said "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." INSIDE MAN is streaming on Showtime, DirectTV and Roku Channel or available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others. Check out this Spike Lee joint - it's his most straight-up mainstream Hollywood film and it is a heck of an entertaining ride.
