Insomnia + The Rock

Insomnia + The Rock
Available on iTunes
Double Feature | Year 1 (2009)

Al Pacino. Being typecast. Eric wrongfully disagrees. Invisible actors. When actors trick you. Putting Michael on the spot. Supernatural detective. Avoiding standard devices. When you walk in on a film. Unnecessary staples. Michael disliked Memento, but still thinks it’s visionary. Visual foreshadowing. Podcast hosts with weird sleeping patterns. Films always get Insomnia wrong. Almost. Finally, a film with an important humanistic message. Eric unknowingly makes puns. Enough with the silly conspiracies! Die Hard is the standard for action films. Smallpox viral, not Survivalism viral. When even suspension of disbelief can’t save you. Character or actors? A film thought experiment – try it at home!
