Inside Man

   24 December 2007, terribly early in the morning

Shima and I watched Spkie Lee’s last film — joint? — Inside Man last night. It’s a heist film: Clive Owen is robbing a bank and Denzel Washington is the detective sent to try and sort things out. There are some twists and turns along the way to keep you guessing as to what’s going on. Denzel and Owen are both entertaining. I think one of my favourite scenes in the film is Waris Singh Ahluwalia complaining about the cops giving him shit and calling him an Arab. There are a lot of cool scenes in the film. My biggest complaint with the movie is the ending: as the story goes I think it works well, but it plays out way too slowly. It ruins the whole pace of the film. (It’s like the end of Lord of the Rings III.) I thought the film would have worked better had Lee tightened up the ending. All in all its a good film, well worth checking out. (Also, the film features Kim Director who is hot. Meow.)

  1. waris singh ahluwalia: I go to the airport, I can’t go through security without a random selection. Fuckin’ random, my ass.

    denzel: I bet you can get a cab though.

    waris: i guess that’s one of the perks.

    that entire scene was brilliant!

  2. I loved Inside Man. I enjoyed watching them go through the very neat plan.

    It also helps that Clive Owen is so ruggedly handsome.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
