A thoroughly engaging crime drama of considerable psychological depth with Al Pacino's slow and painful deconstruction in the eyes of rookies aligning perfectly to the imposing landscape in Alaska. Nolan depicts with great skill this claustrophobic community of flattenned interactions and adumbrates through Robin Williams a convincing supplement to the detective's hidden torment. Atmospheric and very-well acted film.
Robin Williams does his absolutely best work in this film which is really saying something because Pacino gives a positively powerhouse performance as well. I have been mocked by many a cinephile for enjoying this remake of an an acknowledged masterpiece, but I gotta say it's nice to see Nolan calm down and honor genre technique. This film lacks the antsy, self-conscious spectacle of his more recent big budget films.
A fine smaller film from Nolan—indeed, as he goes further and further towards big-budget maximalism, his "minor" films can be his most satisfying, showing the themes that interest him and his knack for slowly fracturing psyches.
I feel like I should watch the original. Pacino's performance is great, but Nolan really doesn't build up any atmosphere. It feels too distant, too much like a movie. And was I the only one who felt the dialogue about the pedophile was just there for shock value? But damn, Robin Williams plays one hell of a creep.
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.
A very underrated film, and one of Pacino's best roles. It is so painful to watch his hyper-realistic descent into hallucinatory sleep-deprivation that after the film is over, you want to take a long nap. Robin Williams plays a subtle villain who would almost be likeable, except there is something about him that you just want to slap repeatedly. Then again, maybe that's just Robin Williams.
