Inside Out seems to be a popular film title. I’m not sure how this one got in my Netflix queue — maybe it was a different Inside Out I’d read something about and I picked this one by mistake. Maybe this was the one after all.
By strategically selecting screen shots it’s possible not only to convey the tone but also the gist and even the audience appeal of a movie. I’ve not seen a trailer for this particular Inside Out, but I think one could be assembled that would bring people into the theaters.
The screen shots in this particular montage were gathered from about a 5-minute sequence near the end of the movie. They show the characteristic Cronenberg- DiPalma themes and surprise turnaround ending, the “inside-out” inversion of subject and object. One might be led to believe that this is a good movie, both entertaining and insightful, a portal as well as a mirror — the kind of trashy genre movie that becomes a cult classic among cinephiles possessed of a certain postmodern sensibility.
