Why is Insomnia considered Nolan's weakest film when...

The 2002 remake of a 1997 Norwegian film about a Los Angeles homicide detective dispatched to a northern town to investigate the methodical murder of a local teen.

Sure, all his films are good, cause he wrote them all. But because of this film, he proved to all that he can take a script already written and still make a bloody good movie as well as a movie that doesn't deviate THAT much from his other films. I seem to be the only one who thinks this feels like a Nolan film, but I don't care. I love this film.

I don't know if I explained that good enough, but I hope I got my point across.
I agree. This movie helps Nolan to direct Batman Begins in the future for WB. And i like the movie too.

That is true but it was a very good script.

Imo it is his weakest, and yet I'd give it four out of five stars.

The most weak screenplay, to be on point. But why? I will have to make this my mission. Why did Nolan cater so much to Hollywood elements when he never has done that before? Was it the Micheal Bay fan inside him? Probably..
