Insomnia

 (2002)

Invited to Nightmute, Alaska, to head a murder case, a veteran LAPD detective finds his investigation disrupted by an ever-shining midnight sun that wreaks sleep-depriving havoc on him – and by personal guilt over a second crime that may be real...or a figment of his increasingly unstable consciousness.

Director: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Hilary Swank, Martin Donovan, Maura Tierney, Nicky Katt

Insomnia Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5


Insomnia emerges from the catalog fog with a remarkable, oft-times striking 1080p/VC-1 transfer; an unexpectedly satisfying, altogether filmic presentation that tactfully complements Christopher Nolan's isolated Alaskan hideaways and Wally Pfister's burdensome shadows. First and foremost, the film's colors are gorgeous. Savory, hearthlike hues imbue a cozy hotel with welcome warmth, clinical greens and icy silvers lend a callous quality to the Nightmute's morgue, and wintry grays and earthy browns afflict a dilapidated lakeside cabin. Through it all, skintones remain natural and lifelike, only succumbing to slight flushing on rare occasion. Black levels are nearly impeccable, delineation teases and reveals exactly as it should, and contrast is strong and stable. Moreover, detail is exquisite. Crisp, refined textures are common and closeups look magnificent; landscapes are sharply defined and the film's attractive veneer of grain is intact. In fact, the whole of the transfer is both proficient and pristine. Artifacting, errant noise, banding, crush and smearing simply aren't in the lineup. Yes, minor ringing invades the image, and yes, a handful of shots seem a bit restless (mainly those at the Connell funeral), but it's unclear whether each one traces back to the filmmakers' original production or the studio's more recent tinkering. Thankfully, neither is distracting enough to warrant any serious grief. From scene to scene, shot to shot, Insomnia earns its place among the most stunning catalog titles released this year. Filmfans and videophiles will be extremely pleased with the results.


Insomnia Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5


Insomnia is an exceedingly atmospheric psychological thriller, and Warner's fluid, sophisticated DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track embraces every distressing silence, hushed exchange and tenuous chase. Dialogue is clean and clear -- Finch's phone voice being the lone (albeit reasonable) exception -- and meticulous prioritization lends realism to dense fog banks and chugging ferries. Subtle touches are used to great effect, tasking the rear speakers with luring listeners deeper and deeper into the film's mounting despair. The chilly alleys of Nightmute are convincing; the boxed-in acoustics of Dormer's hotel room equally so. The clamor of a dump-site is aurally and thematically overwhelming; the restrained bustle of a police station is as perfectly small-town as they come. Granted, large stretches of the film are rather front-heavy, particularly Insomnia's procedural sequences, but Nolan shows a knack for mounting slowburn, sonic offensives that elevate the track throughout the experience. Even composer David Julyan's score plays it close to the chest, relying on hauntingly languid crescendos to build tension. His pieces surge and relent in all their lossless glory, mind you, but his more nuanced flourishes will nevertheless go unnoticed. Similarly, the LFE channel charges to the forefront only when necessary, supporting the mix rather than dominating it, and directionality is, more often than not, a tad diplomatic. Still, I doubt Insomnia could sound much better than it does here.
