Insomnia isn't bad by any stretch. It's a pretty emotional piece with good performances from Pacino and Williams. But I wouldn't recommend watching this with the expectations of Nolan's later films. It's good, but it's nowhere near the levels of depth that he reaches later on in his career.

I think this is easily Nolan's weakest film. Not to say that it's bad, but for Nolan it feels too generic and boring.

Insomnia is arguably better than all three Dark Knight Films.

Even if this is Nolan's weakest, it's still damn good. It puts into perspective just how good of a director he is.

Not Nolan's weakest at all (I will take it over Following, Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar). Great acting and an intriguing mystery. Though, it does have pacing problems!
