On a night in which I cannot sleep, I am reminded of Detective Dormer -played by Al Pacino- in Christopher Nolan's Insomnia. A man that cannot sleep in an always sunny Alaska & a man that clearly doesn't want the light at the end of the tunnel. The movie is a fever dream of elegance and reminiscent of a time when I actually cared a lot more about film and believed in the fever pitch of a dreamlike setting. Detective Dormer is lacking the sleep he needs and still believes in catching a killer on the loose. Pacino's Dormer ends up shot at the movie's conclusion & as he's slowly dying he whispers 'Let me sleep' to his co-officer. How perfect is that?
