INSOMNIA (Theatrical Release USA 2002)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

a solid, police detective story—engages its audience with the combined skills of Hilary Swank, Al Pacino, Martin Donovan, and Robin Williams. While this story genre can often find itself running at a B-grade film level, Insomnia performs as a cut above the rest.
