Plot: Director Arthur Penn (BONNIE AND CLYDE) helmed this political drama set in South Africa both during and after the apartheid era. Beginning in 1988, INSIDE follows college professor Marty Strydom (Stoltz) as he is arrested for conspiring to overthrow the government and thrown in jail where he is interrogated and tortured by a sadistic officer, Colonel Kruger (Hawthorne). The film then cuts to ten years later, after apartheid, and it is Colonel Kruger who finds himself on trial now, trying to slip through the fingers of a black investigator (Gossett) who had been one of his prisoners. Filled with bravura performances, especially Mr. Hawthorne's Kruger, INSIDE is a harrowing and brutal look at the cruelty of the apartheid era in South Africa.
