In Nightmute, Alaska, seventeen-year-old resident Kay Connell is found murdered. As a favor to the local Nightmute police chief, two Los Angeles Robbery Homicide police detectives, Will Dormer and Hap Eckhart, are called in to assist in the investigation. Although renowned in the police world, both Dormer and Eckhart are facing some professional issues back in Los Angeles. In Nightmute, Dormer has a major case of insomnia due to a combination of the incessant midnight sun and from a secret he is carrying. This insomnia is causing him to be delusional. Something he is not dreaming about is that the murderer has contacted him, informing him all about the murder and the fact that he knows everything that is going on with Dormer. They begin a symbiotic relationship in keeping secrets for each individual’s benefit. But ambitious young local detective, Ellie Burr, might piece the story together on her own. —IMDb

Unlike Tetro, this is a GREAT bad movie, one of my faves when I haven't seen it for a while. Every line is a howler monkey; much of the acting is brain-damaged; Pacino and Williams push way beyond ham into a battle for turducken rights. Hilary Swank grabs Pacino's ass without seeming to know why. Maura Tierney plays a soulful, slutty Alaskan-separatist. It's all just one huge mess! And so much fun.
A patient film of harsh cerulean hues, unsettling ambiance, cold vistas and paranoia. Pacino and Williams simmer in subtle, convicted performances as dueling, guilty perfectionists; mirror images trying desperately to shatter each other -- they need no further reminders of their dark deeds and abhorrent desires.
