Inside Man

This is not Spike Lee doing mainstream, this is the mainstream going all Spike Lee on us. Inbetween the lines of one of the most intelligent scripts in recent times, he manages to pulverize this film with his usual trademark references: its refined humour, the racial and social conflicts and, of course, another ode to his beloved New York City, post-9/11. The rest is mostly an (excellent) excuse for him to play, making this "Spike Lee joint" belong to the category of First-Class Entertainment. Now, who's the inside man after all?
