Non-Finns, be grateful you'll never see this!
22 May 2003 | by pertti.jarlaSee all my reviews

There are some world-class turkey makers in Finland. Visa Mäkinen, Ben Kamras, Kemmo brothers. However, these are indie filmmakers. Of the "real" state-sponsored inner-circle auteurs Lauri Törhönen could be the most pitiful. In 1989 Törhönen & co decided to cash on the yuppie boom. Insiders shows business intrigue, drug-abuse, murder and orgies, uncovered by an honest average reporter dude. The portrayal of jet-set glamour isn't very convincing, since this film has the production values of an 80's German porn movie. The actors (mostly trained, capable people) have apparently been told to be cold and emotionless, so they appear like dead fish. Except the working-class reporter hero, who appears like an irritating moron. The Insiders has reached a cult status thanks to its cheesy 80's style and laughable dialogue. What has been noted less often, however, is the fact that in the end we see perhaps the worst car chase ever in world cinema.
