Insomnia DVD

Crime never sleeps. Neither does Will Dormer (AL PACINO), a veteran LAPD homicide detective sent north to Alaska to head a murder case. There his investigation is disrupted by an ever-shining Midnight Sun that wreaks sleep-depriving havoc on his body clock and brings Dormer's shady, guilt-plagued past into the light of day. A Review Though having three Academy Award winners in a cast doesn't guarantee that a movie will be something special, Al Pacino, Robin Williams, and Hilary Swank do indeed work well together in this Hitchcockian thriller set in tiny Nightmute, Alaska. Director Christopher Nolan (Memento) deserves much of the credit as he turns a twisted, if somewhat predictable plot and occasionally clunky dialogue into a claustrophobic, noirish thrill ride to the edge of insanity. Pacino is suitably cast as detective Will Dormer, an L.A. cop sent with his partner to Nightmute (where the sun never sets) to help solve the murder of a teenage girl. Swank plays young, impressionable local officer Ellie Burr, who's idolized Dormer since she studied his work in law-enforcement school. Williams, in a surprisingly modest role, turns up as quiet local mystery novelist Walter Finch, who finds he and Pacino have much in common. More of a psychological thriller than a whodunit, Insomnia successfully weaves several intriguing plotlines into one teetering-on-the-edge-of-madness conclusion that's both disarming and inevitable. --Adem Tepedelen
