This review is from: Insomnia [DVD]  (DVD)
This is one of those films that makes it worth sifting through all the drivel. Films that please me are few and far between, most of them never get under the characters skin and show 'us' what makes them tick. Thanks to the impressive acting from all and sublime direction this doesn't just feel real it makes you feel like an invisible spectator. Especially the scenes of Pacino alone, the emotion he portrays is captivating and the film has such beauty even a close up of some wall paper is interesting.
The story itself is very compelling and told with truth and honesty, this is no Hollywood action thriller, there is no black and white there's a lot of grey in here. Also, the just under two hours running time flys by and if you like thought provoking tales that actually make you feel 'something' then you'll find it two hours very much not wasted. This is a film I'll watch time and time again. I wish they'd make more like this one. It restores your faith in American cinema thats for sure.
