Insomnia
29 April 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Nick Willing's thriller "Close your eyes" came as a total surprise as all I had read about the film was negative. Not only it is a mystery, but it keeps you engrossed in every twist and turn.

This is the story of an American analyst, Dr. Michael Strother, who is working underground in London, treating patients who want to quit smoking. The visuals of the opening credits and the session with detective Janet Losey, are done with a cinematic sense that shows a lot of style from the creative team behind the director.

This is a film that keeps the viewer engrossed in all what is happening on screen. There's never a dull moment as everything evolves in a logical and intelligent manner.

The acting is flawless. The casting of Goran Visnjic, as Dr. Strother is excellent, as this actor makes one feel as though what is happening to him is a reflection of his failure in America. With his good dark looks and accent, he creates a complex character without much effort, or so it seems.

As the detective, Shirley Henderson is equally good as the detective that will not give up in the pursuit of the evil force behind what has been done to the little girl at the center of the story.

The rest of the cast is equally good. Fiona Shaw's Catherine Lebourg is equally spooky as she is mysterious. Paddy Considine as Elliot, is a key in solving the case.

The film is for lovers of the genre. It won't disappoint.
