Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Here's proof that it's still possible to make pop-oriented yet personal movies with an A-list cast and a zillion bucks.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Friday, May 24, 2002
Fresh: A dark and fidgety picture from Christopher Nolan, who made such a splash with Memento.
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Monday, August 5, 2013
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.
- David Ansen, Newsweek, Monday, August 5, 2013
A mix of Silence of the Lambs and Memento, Insomnia is a bleak yet excellent thriller with great performances from Pacino and Williams. The formation and unraveling of the lies that Pacino's character crafts are fascinating to watch. Nolan once more shines as a director, and the cinematography and film editing are effective and top notch.
