Christopher Nolan does it again!
First off, Christopher Nolan is one of my biggest influences when it
comes to film and screen writing. With films such as Following and
Memento, both of which reached cult following levels, he is well on his
way to a successful Hollywood career. Then, today came, his 3rd film
was released, Insomnia. Based on a 1997 Norwegian film written by
Nikolaj Frobenius and Erik Skjoldbjærg, Insomnia is a true work of art
in the world of film.
Christopher Nolan takes all that was the 1997 film, and brings it to
the next level, using his own style of directing, a musical score with
shades of Memento, and an all star cast. Al Pacino and Robin Williams
pulls out the greatest performances of their careers in the past
decade, if not in their ENTIRE careers in my eyes.
Pacino once again excels in the role of master dective, while Williams
takes this chance to show his "dark side", and he does it so well. I
can only hope that this is a rebirth of Robin Williams, and as it
stands with his upcoming film One Hour Photo (which he once again plays
a dark, psychotic role), it seems to be just that! Hilary Swank also
pulls out what is the greatest role of her career.
Insomnia brings you in as an audience, with it's perfectly woven plot,
with a film noir feel to it, just as Nolan's first two films. It is a
rollercoster ride of drama and suspense as you watch Al Pacino from the
very beginning unravel, and the rest of the story and his past catches
up with him. I can not say much more about it, as I do not wish to
spoil anything about if for you, but I do want to say this... ...go see
it, right now, and enjoy. If you love crime/mystery/drama films with
that wonderful Film Noir feel to it, you will love this film. If that
isn't your thing, then the performances of the three main actors are
worth the price of a ticket in itself.
Finally I just want to say, that Insomnia proves once and for all that
Christopher Nolan will indeed be a force to reckoned with in Hollywood.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again... ...Christopher Nolan is
well on his way to becoming the Hollywood legend which he proves he is
capable of becoming.
