I can proudly say that I am one of the two that voted 100%. I think this is one of if not his most visually stunning film and one of his best directorial efforts. He didn't write the script, but I think he still put his mark on the story through his work behind the camera. Great film.

I voted a 9 for Insomnia.
It's a bit of a shame that its score is so low, but at least it's rising (was 77%, now 78% :D )

I know it doesn't have Nolan's usual narrative tricks, but it certainly has the same tone and themes of other Nolan movies and I think it is one of his best directorial efforts. It shows that he can succeed even when he doesn't write the script (even if he may have written the final draft, he wasn't credited).

yeah, let's say it's less beautiful than his own projects, but a great thriller as well.
