Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film represents a triumph of atmosphere over a none-too-mysterious mystery. Which is to say that Nolan makes you feel the end-of-the-earth bleakness of his setting, makes you feel the way it can discombobulate people once they internalize it.
Fresh: While it may not be as stylistically idiosyncratic as Memento Insomnia is a gripping, highly dramatic thriller that more than confirms the distinctive talent of young Brit helmer Christopher Nolan.
Fresh: Scene by scene, screenwriter Hillary Seitz follows director Erik Skjoldbjaerg's original closely, but this remake deepens and improves upon the Norwegian film by giving Dormer a more complex relationship with Eckhart.
Fresh: The highlight is Pacino, who gives his best performance in years.
Nolan, possibly the greatest director?
Simply amazing movie, i cannot give it enough praise. Al Pacino outdoes him self once again in this suspensful and eerie movie. I highly reccomend this movie to anyone who enjoys thriller/crime movies.
williams plays the most credible killer ever.
and pacino plays an insomniac detective and embodies it so well. Pacino best acting ever period.
