Tribute ECM


Michael Mann
USA 1999
157 min

There is no question that few filmmakers could fashion an engrossing thriller around the complex web of deceit which surrounds the modern tobacco industry, and fewer still could do so without recourse to easily discernible heroic central figures, pitiable victims or the reduction of the story to simple plot points. That Michael Mann has resisted the temptation to dumb down this material for The Insider reaffirms his position as one of the most important and intelligent directors currently working in mainstream cinema. He has created a tense psychological suspenser as complex and uncompromising as it is engaging and enthralling. It is, in short, a masterpiece, a brilliant dissection of recent US politics and the media. (Mark Kermode)
