In Insomnia, Al Pacino plays a veteran detective on loan from the LAPD to investigate the murder of a teenage girl in northern Alaska. His character suffers from severe sensory disorientation brought on by the never-setting sun, but Pacino the great actor is wide awake, giving his most powerful, nuanced performance in years. As a prime suspect, Robin Williams conveys a finicky creepiness. Christopher Nolan (”Memento”) uses his first big Hollywood picture to demonstrate that he’s a filmmaker in full control of mood, tone, and pacing.
