An absorbing film-drama
From scene one, this film delivers a long slow burn as the tale of power and
corruption unfolds. There is little action, but the film is steeped in an
atmosphere of tension and high drama. The direction by Michael Mann is
masterful, an object lesson in how to frame shots and let silence, as well
as words - and music - work for the story. Al Pacino is once more the great
actor of early films such as 'Scarecrow', instead of the theatrical
performer of recent films. Russell Crowe shows his solid 'ordinary
guy'character as more tortured through losing his family than any of the
macho scenes he portrayed in 'Gladiator.' A superb film..

How can I write a review on a movie I haven't seen yet?.
m tells the true story of Jeffrey Wigand, a former tobacco executive, who decided to appear on the CBS-TV News show "60 Minutes." As matter of conscience partially prodded by producer Lowell Bergman, he revealed that, the tobacco industry was not only aware that cigarettes are addictive & harmful, but deliberately worked on increasing that addictiveness. Unfortunately, both protagonists of this story learn the hard way that simply telling the truth is not enough as they struggle against both Big Tobacco's attempts to silence them and the CBS TV Network's own cowardly complict preference of putting money as a higher priority over the trut.
Intense, realistic, and brilliant
Normally, films that use a lot of hand-held camera or oddly-composed shots
really bother me. Michael Mann's use of the two in The Insider, however, is
nothing short of brilliant. This is not a movie. It's an intense, visceral
immersion in what it's like to put your future on the line for something you
believe is right. The audience does not watch The Insider - it walks
alongside the camera as two men, 60 Minutes producer Lowell Bergman (Al
Pacino) and tobacco industry whistleblower Jeffrey Wigand (Russell Crowe),
put everything they have at stake to make sure the world finds out that the
tobacco companies deliberately misled the public over the knowledge they had
of their product's effects. It is a raw, powerful, engaging experience,
with Pacino and Crowe at the top of their game (as well as a fine supporting
turn by Christopher Plummer as 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace) providing
masterful compliments to Mann's blistering direction. Possibly the best
film of 1999 (jockeying with American Beauty), The Insider is one of the ten
best films to take its story from actual events ever made..
