The Insider

One of the most underrated, and perhaps important, films of the 1990s. Michael Mann’s “The Insider” is based on the true story of a 60 Minutes segment about tobacco industry whistleblower Jeffrey Wigand.

If you’ve got vital insider stuff the American people, for their welfare, really do need to know, and you feel impelled to disclose it and violate your agreement in doing so, that’s one thing. On the other hand, if you want to honor this agreement, then that’s simple. You do so. You say nothing, you do nothing. There’s only one guy who can figure that out for you, and that’s you all by yourself.
