Inside (Penn, 1996)

A great setup but turns murky as the structure jumps back and forth between Stoltz’s imprisonment in apartheid South Africa and Louis Gossett Jr.’s post apartheid questioning of the warden of Stoltz’s facility. More theatrical than anything else, very spare sets, minimal camera movement, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since the material is very strong, just leaves one with very little to discover on your own.
