Inside Man

I headed up to Kokura yesterday to see Inside Man, a movie directed by Spike Lee and staring Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, and Jodie Foster.  The movie deals with an unconventional bank robbery full of surprising plot twists and reversals.  In classic Spike Lee fashion, the film also deals with racial stereotypes and interracial relations with sophisticated and well-developed characters who challenge the notions of who the "bad guys" and the "good guys" are.  I don't want to give away too much.  Definitely check it out!  Also noteworthy is the Bollywood track, Chaiyya Chaiyya, used for the opening and closing credits – it made me want to get up and dance right there in the cinema.
