Insomnia - June 2002


A worthy successor to director Christopher Nolan’s "Memento." Al Pacino creates another unforgettable character, a California detective on loan to a small Alaska town. He runs a murder investigation but can’t sleep, partly due to the 24-hour Alaska sunlight and partly due to the stress of the job. A solid thriller from start to finish.

[2009: Christopher Nolan would later go on to direct "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight." He did fine jobs with those movies but I'd like to see him do some small movies like "Memento" again.]
