Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out is a rockumentary film made by Stewart Copeland, drummer of the band The Police. The film premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and was released on DVD in September 2006. The title of the film is a reference to his song "Does Everyone Stare", from Reggatta de Blanc. It was re-released in 2019 on DVD and Blu-Ray, with different cover artwork.

For this film, Stewart Copeland used material he shot himself with a Super-8 camera he bought in 1978.


The first part of the film is a slideshow of photos before Copeland acquired his film camera. This includes the era with Henry Padovani and the arrival of Andy Summers. The film then follows the band as they try to find success in America, joined by Copeland's childhood friend Kim Turner as their tour manager.

The band then return to Europe, performing at various festivals. They then got their first taste of fame when a mob of fans wait for them in Birmingham after a show. This is followed by number one singles on both sides of the Atlantic and the band's explosive shoot to success. However, they collaborate less and less on songs as Sting brings in almost finished songs. It ends with The Police headlining the US Festival in 1982 and their eventual breakup.
