Inside Man is a 2006 crime-drama film starring Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Willem Dafoe and Jodie Foster, and directed by Spike Lee. The film's screenplay is written by Russell Gewirtz and produced by Brian Grazer. It was released in North America and several European markets on March 23 and 24, 2006.The film was shot on location in New York City and features an expansive and diverse ensemble cast. In addition to being a cerebral action-oriented thriller, the film handles issues of good and evil in unexpected sources, corruption, anti-heroes, multiculturalism in America (and New York City in particular) post-September 11, 2001, and leaves several interpretations of right and wrong open to the audience.The title comes from several different meanings of the term "inside man", and may be considered a use of wordplay.Inside Man opens with a closeup of Dalton Russell (Clive Owen) sitting in confinement, though the location of the cell he is in is not revealed. He muses, to the audience,...,
Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 is the sequel to the movie The Blair Witch Project. Released on October 27, 2000, it was directed by Joe Berlinger, who previously (and subsequently) had only directed true documentaries.
Although its theatrical release made a profit, it is largely considered a huge failure. Its failure has been blamed, in part, on its R rating, which was strictly enforced by theatres due to contemporary political pressures. Others (including director Joe Berlinger) believe that the incoherence of the film caused its failure. Desiring a more "commercial" film, the studio (Artisan) recut the film and re-shot certain scenes to add more "traditional" horror movie elements. Berlinger repeatedly states on the DVD commentary that he does not like the changes that were made and that they ruin the ambiguous tone of the plot. The film was nominated for five Razzie Awards, including Worst Picture.
Bamboozled is a 2000 satirical film written and directed by Spike Lee about a modern televised minstrel show featuring black actors donning blackface makeup and the violent fall-out from the show's success.
The word "Bamboozled" means "purposefully confused, tricked or led astray".
The content is intended as satirical, with its show within a show featuring its characters, all in blackface, performing in a watermelon patch. The Roots, a hip-hop band from Philadelphia, have a role as the show's house band, The Alabama Porch Monkeys. The audiences within the movie, initially baffled, come to love the show, and after a few episodes even elderly white women show up in blackface and proclaim themselves "niggers".
The script expresses rage and grief at media representations of black people, largely through the eyes of its moral center, Sloan Hopkins (played by Jada Pinkett Smith). It also satirizes many icons of black culture including Ving Rhames, Will Smith (real-life husband of Jada...,
