Even if it wasn't a 'masterpiece', Insomnia was definitely an important step in Nolan's career. The film had a sense of scale that Memento lacked, the cinematography was impressive (although not Wally's best), and helped establish Nolan's current place in Hollywood. The film is a 'foundation' of sorts to his career.

Nolan received a lot of help while making this movie, and that's the reason why you don't actually see his style there yet. But it's still a great film. A good detective, which I quite enjoy, though I didn't watch it so many times.

His style is definitely there. Not sure exactly what you're meaning.

She reprises a similar detective role in Logan Lucky (good flick), though it is mostly really at the tail-end of the film.
