Nolan's follow-up to Memento is just as taut and ambiguous as its predecessor and -- arguably -- features better performances from its leading me

Despite its linear storyline, the film is very recognisably the work of the sharp, probing intelligence that gave us Following and Memento.

Unlike most remakes, the Nolan Insomnia is not a pale retread, but a re-examination of the material, like a new production of a good play.
