3 stars out of 4 -- "Denzel Washington energizes the movie....[He] has the kind of star quality other actors would die for: unfakeable cool." Rolling Stone "[Lee's] most polished and satisfying work in years....[Foster delivers] her wittiest, most relaxed performance in ages..." New York Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "While he slaloms around the plot's slippery hairpins, Lee relishes the interplay of character that pulses through Russell Gewirtz's screenplay, and a pedigree cast helps him to tweezer out the tensions and innuendos." Uncut "Lee orchestrates the high-stakes drama with a slick adrenalised urgency that wouldn't be out of place in a multiplex actioner." Sight and Sound "Exceptionally well written with clever twists and witty dialogue by first-time screenwriter Russell Gewirtz, INSIDE MAN is adroitly executed by director Spike Lee."USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he first half's a gripper, twitchy and tense with plenty of nods toward modern urban anxieties..." Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Lee has managed to assemble a fantastic cast, with everyone from relative newcomer Ejiofor, to old-hand Plummer and especially Washington, as the slyly intelligent Frazer, making an impression." Ultimate DVD "It's smart, twisty, and talky." -- Grade: B+ Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 5 -- "With a knowing nod to Lumet's DOG DAY AFTERNOON, Spike Lee shows he can deliver a straightforward heist thriller."Uncut "The screenplay, by Russell Gewirtz, operates confidently in action mod but is always willing to pause for an oddball encounter, a rambling story or a great, tossed-off joke."Wall Street Journal43.03455

When roots is what you crave, dig deep."Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.124) - "...almost 70 tracks of songs and music from the era when the emerging blues had not yet obliterated the rags, reels and ballads that preceded it... moving and illuminating music....The sound engineering is terrific..."New York Times (Publisher) (4/14/96, Sec.2, p.30) - "...BEFORE THE BLUES offers a tour of folk ballads, ragtime melodies, church hymns and breakdown dances that is as listenable as it is enlightening..."0.1337375
