Introduction

The Insider The film was basically was about a man who knew too much about the company's false declarations made about cigarettes. The film starts with Lowell Bergman (Pacino) trying to convince a sheik in the Middle East about doing an interview with Mike Wallace (Plummer) for the CBS show 60 Minute .While the interview was being produced back in US Jeffrey Wigand (Crowe) packs his belongings and leaves Brown and Williamson as he got fired for trying to convince the company to stop the production of cigarettes that manipulate nicotine through ammonia chemistry to allow nicotine to be more rapidly absorbed in the lungs and therefore affect the brain and central nervous system through a process known as impact boosting and find a alternate ingredient to produce cigarettes. ...read more.
