Sleepless in Alaska...
Last night we went to see Insomnia at the Warner Village Islington. Great film. Kinda like Fargo but with a darker heart. Al Pachino was excellent. Since seeing him in The Insider I have really rated him as an actor (OK, so I'm like 30 years after everyone else did but, hey, I have a long auditon time for my 'most admired actor' job!)

Robin Williams are cool too - a revelation really. I confess that I used to quite like his sentimental roles in films like The World According to Garp, Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs Doubtfire. But that was until I saw Patch Adams - where I just wanted to Punch Adams. After that he kinda left me cold. But with Insomnia he has actually done quite a good job. Convincingly complex - if you know what I mean.

I shall give none of the plot anyway but simply say - go see. Very good film.
