THE I INSIDE is a very fine film that deserves a wide audience. It ranks up there with 'MEMENTO', 'THE SIXTH SENSE', and 'JACOB'S LADDER' as the sort of intelligent film that demands intensive participation on the part of the viewer to catch all of its nuances and possible plot variations.

Based on a play Michael Cooney who also wrote the screenplay and directed with considerable finesse by Roland Suso Richter, the story involves a bizarre mix of altered circumstances surrounding the hospitalization of Simon Cable (Ryan Phillippe in a performance that is the finest of his career and promises much more from this actor) whose circumstances for awakening under the care of one Dr Jeremy Newman (Stephen Rea) are nebulous. Dr Newman who slowly reveals to Simon that he is suffering from acute memory loss due to trauma and possible poisoning (he had undergone cardiac arrest and was resuscitated) and yet warmly reassures him he will soon return to normal. In essence Simon has 'lost' two years of his life, finding through the blur of amnesia that he has a wife Anna (Piper Perabo) who secretly reveals to him that there is a murder in his history that is part of an evil 'plan'. He also encounters Clair (Sarah Polley) who claims they are lovers. Simon is informed that his brother Peter (Robert Sean Leonard) is dead: Anna supports the premise that Simon killed him. The ingredients of the mystery of the lost two years are set in motion.

The connection between the past in 2000 and the 'present' in 2002 is slowly revealed in mind-boggling flashbacks and re-runs of possibilities: apparently the misdeeds of 2000 included an auto accident which resulted in Simon's hospitalization in the very place he finds himself in 2002 and in which his brother Peter died.

Format: DVD
THE I INSIDE (2007, 95 minutes) is the mind-bending story of Simon Cable (Ryan Philippe, erroneously credited in print as "Phillipe" but in fact correctly credited in the film). Simon ends up in a hospital with amnesia, slowly regaining his memory in violent, disturbing starts/stops.

At a certain point, he is suddenly traveling through time, to an earlier hospital visit that also involved the death of his brother (Robert Sean Leonard). It seems he is traveling between 2002 and 2007 (in one scene it is confirmed how he gets the year 2002; in another scene he says to himself "It's 2007"). Yep - it's puzzling as all get-out! This was sold as a time-traveller film, only ....

It seems if you stick with this sloppy, rapidly moving mediocre tedium, you'll probably guess, as I did, that Simon is actually dead. The whole thing is his restless soul struggling to find a forgiveness that only he can achieve through enlightenment.

Apparently Simon was a rich, spoilt psychopath in life. It is the murder of his brother, which he committed, that he must grapple before he can fully 'pass on'. It is solid enough to plot the story along the chart that he must really feel the remorse and pay dearly for it before he can move onward.

The trick of the film is to hold us to the idea that Simon will somehow solve his brother's murder - we are in the dark about what happened. I suppose if the rather pathetically told story doesn't captivate you enough, there's always the thrilling muck that is supposed to be time travel.

Ultimately, it will require Simon remembering his own death, plus the voices of his brother and even his father (the immortal and always undersold Stephen Rea) telling him he's dead.

This movie has a strong sense of "Been there, done that before." No, I'm not talking about the characters, I'm talking about the audience. It's kind of funny, I was reviewing the C-grade horror movie "Soul Survivors" the other day, and, perusing the other reviews, everyone seemed to be in agreement that the movie had far too many cheats and poor explanations. In actuality, I think it's just easier to rip apart low-budget horror movies than movies with more ambition, like "The I Inside," because this movie has far more cheats and dead-ends never explained than "Soul Survivors." "The I Inside" also attempts to do far more than "Soul Survivors," with much loftier aims, so it fails in a more spectacular way.

"The I Inside" stars Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Polley, Piper Perabo, Robert Sean Leonard, and Stephen Rea. The casting is good, I think. First of all, I don't think Ryan Phillippe can play an out-and-out good guy. Even when he tries to cover it, he just comes off and looks like an obnoxious brat. It's really not his fault, but it's there. But in this movie, his casting works, because he is a privileged, rich... well, brat, for lack of a better term who may not be the nice guy that he seems... if you think that's a clue he's really bad though, you'd be wrong too. As for the rest of the cast, I like them. Sarah Polley has slipped a little in recent years, but looking over her body of work she is still one of the most impressive actresses of her age, I think. Stephen Rea is great in pretty much whatever he does, and Leonard is a guy I liked since "Dead Poets Society" and recently reaffirmed his talent in the surprising "Tape.
