Insomnia 2: I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

Released between the indie-breakout success of Memento and global blockbuster Batman Begins, Insomnia could be considered the forgotten Christopher Nolan movie. 

The only film that the infamously oblique director didn't write himself, the movie is a remake of a gritty Norwegian crime thriller. While it doesn't quite reach the head-scratching heights of the director's later work, it still boasts many classic Nolan signifiers, in addition to a brace of strong performances from Oscar winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank.

Tune into this week's episode to hear our thoughts on anti-typecasting, un-mourned murder victims, driftwood parkour and much more as we break down the plot and pitch some sequel ideas - with the help of special guest star Ross Burton!


Beyond The Box Set is a British movie podcast with a twist. Each week, we take a memorable standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
