Can't sleep...

Insomnia: 4 Stars. I can't recall the last time I saw a movie with such a consistent atmosphere...although The Others comes close. Christopher Nolan proved that Memento was no fluke in this amazing, twisty tale of murder, corruption, betrayal, and sleep deprivation based on the Finnish film of the same name. In a familiar role as a seasoned cop that he could have phoned in, if he'd chosen to, Al Pacino simply shines, and Robin Williams is ├╝ber-creepy as the murderer. Pretty much a flawless suspense thriller, with amazing cinematography to boot (check out the last scene if you doubt that).
