Inside Man (US, 2006)

It’s interesting to see Spike Lee tackle a straight-on genre movie; not that it’s that straight-on as there are plenty of wrinkles to the heist movie paradigm to make this a stand out example of the genre. Also, guessing this is Lee’s influence, the multi-ethnic cast (and undercurrent of racism) gives this a very modern feel. Many Hollywood movies seem to exist in a parallel world but this feels like authentic New York. Cracking movie. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454848/
