Willem Dafoe Behind Bars: The Inside Story

"Inside": Willem Dafoe imprisoned

Greek documentary director Vasilis Katsoupis has made an impressive debut in the world of feature films by casting Hollywood legend Willem Dafoe in his latest release. The film sees Dafoe portray a burglar caught in a high-end apartment in New York, along with a number of valuable contemporary art pieces.

With the alarm blaring and the lock secured, Nemo (Dafoe’s character) is left stranded, unable to escape. As he waits for help to arrive, the audience is treated to a masterful performance from the actor as he slowly loses his mind. His exceptional ability to portray emotions is on full display in this one-man show.

As the viewer is drawn into the world created by Dafoe and Katsoupis, the camera lingers on the artworks in the apartment, allowing for brief interpretations. The film is a testament to the meeting of film art and acting art, as well as the contemporary gallery art that serves as its backdrop.

Overall, this is a fascinating chamber play, masterfully executed by both actor and director, and well worth watching for fans of both film and art. With a running time of 105 minutes and a rating of FSK: from 12 years, this is a must-see for anyone who appreciates masterful acting and the beauty of contemporary art.
