Inside Man is a 2006 crime-drama film directed by Spike Lee. It stars Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Willem Dafoe and Jodie Foster. The film's screenplay is written by Russell Gewirtz and produced by Brian Grazer. It was released in North America and several European markets on March 23 and 24, 2006.

The film was shot on location in New York City and features an expansive and diverse ensemble cast. In addition to being a cerebral action-oriented thriller, the film handles issues of good and evil in unexpected sources, corruption, anti-villains, prejudice, multiculturalism in America (and New York City in particular) post-September 11, 2001, genocide and leaves several interpretations of right and wrong open to the audience.

The title comes from several different meanings of the term "inside man", and may be considered a use of wordplay.
