Insomnia ★★½

Watched as part of Filmspotting’s oeuvre-view...

As someone who counts himself as quite a Christopher Nolan fan, I couldn’t remember much about Insomnia... and, well, no wonder... as it’s largely very forgettable.

The script is so straight-forward and, at times, just bad... and there’s also none of the usual directorial creativeness which makes people hold many of Nolan’s other movies in high esteem.

The movie improves once Robin Williams enters it with his very untypical, dark performance and Hilary Swank is also very good.

The rest? It’s absolutely sleep-inducing.
