    3/16/23 AMC Lincoln Square 1st Showing…I left after about 15mins, less than 25 minutes of trailers and Nicole Kidman ad. Did I want to get invested in Dafoe’s seemingly irredeemable character? NO.

    Wanted to like it, but it was insufferable. Made worse by having only to look at the almost always repulsive visage of Dafoe. Was hoping for some redeeming ending, but even it was a head-scratcher. BTW, he left his fingerprints all over the place, so he is going to be on the run and facing jail (if he eve got out of the penthouse, which is unclear if he even did. As others noted, DAFOE was in another miserable movie a few years back, THE LIGHTHOUSE, playing another character locked up and going crazy... also rotten. That one was full of F-bombs, but the 1 redeeming quality of INSIDE is that I can't remember any. I felt sorry for others in the audience who brought a date to this miserable dreck. Saw both in theater, this one, INSIDE, at AMC 'erton, 3.17.2023. Giving it a lousy 1 1/2 RT stars, 'rotten'.

    A rare miss from Sir Dafoe. A nonsensical snorefest. Avoid this one.

    Not much plot to speak of, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching Wilhem Dafoe go nuts.

    Like the movie Cube or Circle but in a realistic setting. Not for everyone. Enjoyable flick

    Even though I felt the last third should have been trimmed by about 10 minutes, overall, a good inventive film with another xlnt performance by Defoe. The less you read about this film going in, the better.

    Sorry, the movie was not good at all. Such dedication from Dafoe.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say Willem deserves his own cooking show… Inside is a tense, claustrophobic thriller that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The film follows Nemo, a high-end art thief, who finds himself trapped inside a luxurious NYC penthouse after a heist gone wrong. As he tries to find a way out, he realizes that he's not alone in the building. Willem Dafoe delivers a strong performance as Nemo, a man who must rely on his wits and survival skills to make it out alive. Dafoe's portrayal is realistic and grounded, which adds to the film's gritty atmosphere. However, the film's one-location setting and slow pacing may not be for everyone. The movie's runtime could have been shorter, as some scenes feel unnecessarily drawn out. Overall, Inside is a decent survival thriller that offers a solid performance from Willem Dafoe. While it may not be the most innovative or exciting film in its genre, it's worth a watch for fans of the actor or the survival genre.

    Highly recommended for DaFoe fans. If you enjoy his films then you obviously aren't afraid of a slow-burn cinema experience. Slow-paced and beautifully shot with very little dialogue. I caught this opening day stoned & alone in an empty theatre and I was glued to the screen. The film had me feeling extremely tense at some points, slightly annoyed during others, and it got at least 3 good laughs out of me before the final act. I love DaFoe's work, and this is yet another excellent addition to his impressive filmography!
