Savage, crippled as a result of a suicide attempt, is reborn in a seedy LA bar where most of the regulars are disabled. As if this weren't difficult enough material in itself, the plot is also determinedly optimistic, mingling its neo-realist surface with dreams of basketball stardom which eventually come true. Sheer eccentricity and ambitiousness place Inside Moves above the Kramer class, but ultimately the film only reconfirms that good liberal intentions rarely produce good Hollywood movies.
