Hooray for Hollywood

Spike Lee's "Inside Man" is the first mainstream movie I've seen in a long time. And I made the right choice. This is a superb Saturday night, popcorn movie. I ate it up--butter and all--and loved it. This is a cat-and-mouse bank robbery tale with the always-delivers Denzel Washington as the detective and the always-brewing Clive Owen as the robber. The battle of wits and wills takes place in New York City, and this portrait feels very real; this is the NYC I see and love. Oh, and let's throw in a sexy (yes) Jodie Foster, who--thankfully--doesn't play the victim again but an evil bitch who could reduce you to a puddle.
