Customer Review

on May 13, 2000
The Insider is a brillant, engrossing movie about Dr.Jeffery Wigand a tobacco scientist at Brown & Williamson. He is unfairly fired from his job and after much soul searching Dr.Wigand decides to blow the whistle. He contacts 60 minutes producer Lowell Bergman to reveal what the tobacco industry has been hiding from the general public.
Lowell wants the story, however Wigand is reluntance to reveal all of the information because of outside pressure. Eventually both men agree to do the story with Mike Wallace performing the interview. The problem is Wigand is violating his agreement with Brown & Williamson not to reveal any information and the company issues a gag order against him. The bigwigs at CBS decide not air the story because of ligitation.
I found Russell Crowe, Al Pacino, and Christopher Plummer performances compelling and awesome. I often asked myself if I would put my family in hardship over the great good of truth. This movie really puts that issue in prespective. I would recommend this movie.
