Has anyone seen the new film Insomnia? It's directied by the same guy that did the rather excellent Memento and has a very good cast list, just wondered what opinion was as I've not seen any reviews/trailers at all?

I've seen the original but not the supposedly Schmaltzy hollywood remake.

Yeah I saw this.
Plot was unashamedly half-assed.
The only thing it had going for it was the insomnia thing.
I definately came out of the film wanting to sleep. Maybe it was because it was boring. Overall not impressed.

Saw memento 2 days after that and much much prefered that.

Yeah, Memento is a superb film, kind of hoped that would carry over to Insomnia, sounds like it's not worth it?

Apparently it's long, self indulgent, and sleep-fetishist.:sleep:

how can it be sleep-fetishist if it's about an insomniac? eh? Ha. :p

Damn I was going to be witty and say that.
