The One Inside is a searing, extraordinarily evocative narrative in which an actor/writer explores and revisits key moments and people from his life-all the while attempting to negotiate with a young woman who threatens to publish recordings of their darkly revealing phone conversations. In his dreams and in visions he sees his late father, sometimes in miniature, sometimes flying planes, sometimes at war. In his childhood memories he sees his father's young girlfriend, with whom the narrator also became involved, setting into motion a tragedy that continues to haunt him. His complex interiority is filtered through beautiful descriptions of landscapes across America as he travels, works on his art, and shows us the world of filmmaking. The rhythms of theater, the language of poetry, and the scope of a novel combine in this stunning meditation on the nature of memory and experience, at once celebratory, haunting, funny, surreal, and unforgettable.
