THE I INSIDE

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 91 minutes

STUDIO: DIMENSION

RELEASE DATE: 3-1-2005

ANALYSIS: THE I INSIDE is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever watched. It has earned an entry for the top 10 movies on DVD for 2005. This mind-bending thriller holds it's own and is better than IDENTITY. THE I INSIDE is as good as MEMENTO.

It had me on the edge of my seat as it dragged me into it's very twisted little world as Simon (Ryan Phillippe) tries to find out what happened in the last two years after he wakes up in a hospital after a near-fatal accident. His doctor (Stephen Rea) tells Simon that he has died for two minutes and Simon is missing the last two years of his memory. He doesn't remember getting married to Anna (Piper Perabo) and he is haunted by the memory of Clair (Sarah Polley). Simon wonders if he is going insane when he finds himself shifting between 2002 (the present) and 2000 (when he first ended up in the hospital after a car accident). Is Simon remembering or is Simon able to time travel? Can he really change his past or is it all the part of the process of the last two years coming back to him?

THE I INSIDE is expertly directed with one of the best title sequences ever. The acting is top notch and even Piper Perabo can show she can really act.

VIDEO/AUDIO: THE I INSIDE is presented in 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen. Colors and blacks are good. Image detail is great.

You can hear the movie in English 5.1 Dolby Digital (there is also a Spanish language track) with the option fo English captions or French subtitles. The dialogue comes in very clearly. The music and sound elements come across as very aggressive during the movie. They play a very important element in THE I INSIDE.

EXTRAS: NONE

FINAL ANALYSIS: I highly recommend that you rent THE I INSIDE because Dimension has criminally skipped releasing this one in the theaters.  It is one of the better psychological thrillers in recent years.
