Saw Inside Man last night and the film is awesome. Great story and very very good thriller that keeps you guessing throughout the entire movie. Spike Lee also does a fantastic job of mixing in social commentary throughtout the movie (doesn't he always?).

The synopsis of Inside Man is that a tough detective, Detective Frazier (Denzel Washington), matches wits with a clever bank robber, Dalton (Clive Owen), in a tense hostage drama. As the dangerous cat-and-mouse game unfolds, a wild card emerges: Madaline (Jodie Foster), a power broker with a hidden agenda, who injects even more instability into an already volatile situation. On the topic of Jodie how old is she? cause she is looking ridiculously good. Nice to see an actress go away from the whole hack your body to pieces approach (ala Meg Ryan).

If you haven't checked out this movie yet I would highly recommend it. I should also mention that once again Terence Blanchard does a fantastic job with the soundtrack. My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of seeing him with an introduction by Spike Lee at a Chicago Symphony concert a couple summers ago. Simply superb.

Inside Man trailer from Apple (Quicktime).

The movie opens with one of the coolest hip hop remixes I have ever heard for a movie opening & closing. Its a cut called Chaiyya Chaiyya Bollywood Joint (featuring MC Panjabi). I love it. I have the unremixed version without MC Panjabi which is not nearly as bumping here:

Mp3: Sapna Awashthi & Sukwinder Singh - "Chaiyya Chaiyya"

Still a damn good track. Also I shouldn't probably be using damn so much on Easter Sunday. Ahh well, buy the damn Inside Man Soundtrack from Amazon.

i loved it too. spike lee's got a genuine new york flavor. the comment that denzel and his partner made about not being able to catch a cab - and the whole scene with the dude's albanian ex-wife......those characters were so spike.
