Insomnia - the movie

Anyone else seen this movie? I watched it last night, I really liked it.

Pretty dark movie though. Well, VERY dark movie I guess I should say.

They filmed it in Canada, the locations were freaking beautiful. Who knew there was something good about Canada? (this comment was meant to offend Cujo and Cujo only)

Yeah, we read that. I'd like to see that too.

I'd also like to see Ringu, the original Japanese version of The Ring.

Not bad. A bit slow at times. It's odd that we know who the killer is right at the beginning. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet, although it worked effectively in the movie.

Solid film, Williams is excellent and Al Pacino is arguably the best actor there is when it comes to looking tired!

My sister actually works for "the biz" up here... we see a lot of films come up through Alberta, but Hollywood gets pissed any time productions are made outside the American border...

I guess I'll have to see the movie, since I am an insomniac...

i saw it when they showed it on campus, and i was a little dissapointed. i liked it, but i read too much about how wonderful it was...

i don't know, expectations were too high or something...still liked it, not as much as memento...but i still liked it...

Very good film, excellent performances by Pacino and Williams who shows he can be a serious actor when he puts his mind to it

oh and Ringu is definitely not to be missed, even for non-horror fans. American remake does not compare I'm afraid

I tend to like almost anything with Pacino, this film was very good imo.
Chris Nolan is a great filmmaker.....
