Blanchard
Inside Man: (Terence Blanchard) It might be surprising to many movie-goers to watch a Spike Lee movie that has very little editorial content, but Inside Man is about as straight an action/drama movie as you can get. Robbers take over a Wall Street bank with the contents of a single safe deposit box in their interest, and four distinct parties are placed in constant motion around the heist: the owner of the bank who wants the contents of the box concealed at all costs (Christopher Plummer), the well-connected broker/negotiator he hires to strike a deal with the robbers (Jodie Foster), the morally ambiguous but incredible sharp detective trying to outsmart the robbers (Denzel Washington), and the cops who want to free the hostages by storming the building (led by Willem Dafoe). The cat and mouse antics of the robbers and lead detective remain intelligent from start to end, and with a cast of such reliable talent, it's hard to figure where Inside Man might disappoint. Generally, reviews and popular response to the film have been positive, though a few questionable holes in the plot and the absence of any extraordinary element has caused Inside Man to be labeled as "entertaining but unremarkable." For Spike Lee, only a few occasional snippets of social commentary enter into the mix, a surprising turn towards straight-laced action for the controversial director, and in the same regards, the score by veteran black jazz musician Terence Blanchard also attempts to play towards mainstream action.
