4.0 out of 5 stars 2 out of 3 aint bad!, 31 Aug 2014
And so the cat and mouse chase is on! The first 2 eps were gripping but the last one fell flat but luckily I was still interested enough to want to know how it ended. As TV goes it really is very good, shame theres no Blu-ray as that really does it justice. the hyper movements of the camera from the off are utterly gripping. 10 out of 10 for adrenaline!

If I'm honest I bought this for my dad, but appreciate a listen myself. Not bad for a fiver.

Nothing much big round the corner, it's more like a musical ride.

Did I ever know what insomnia is? Sure it's not being able to sleep, but what does it do to you??

I think I know now, as I can feel myself addressing it right here, I've been up for nearly 17 hours. But at least I can sleep, this guy can go 5 days without a blink.

The film seems to say something about small town mentalities and what it's like living in one. I'm from one and I recognize certain aspects of human behaviours and attitiudes. Al Pacino's character holds it together as best he can - the interesting fact being that he has had to cut corners throughout his career and they are catching up with him more than he will catch up with sleep. He is tormented by this… Read more
