I watched the Inside Story on Showtime...the Foxtel movie channel in Australia...and from the opening 10 minutes or so, I wasn't expecting anything too great. Awkward acting, cheesy sound effects (creaking doors anyone?) and a bit splotch of the lame almost saw me flick channels. But I kept watching, and I'm glad I did. The Inside Story was superbly written, every progression in the plot was stunning, with a roller-coaster of twists throughout keeping me interested and at times amazed through it's entirety.
While some scenes don't seem to fit, and the acting is often terrible, by the end you'll be wanting to see it again. If this film was produced on a bigger budget, with better actors it could have been a massive hit, but unfortunately, it went straight to cable TV. Congratulations to Robert Sutherland for a superbly crafted piece of work.
See this for: the storyline, Michael - the full-of-himself musician specialising in schoolboy toilet humour, Bud Tingwell, the twists.
