Video of the Day: Watch how the original and remake of ‘Insomnia’ differ from each other

Insomnia

Throughout the course of movie history, numerous films have been remade in other languages. Hollywood has been no exception to this rule, with perhaps 1960’s The Magnificent Seven standing as the most notable example of a remake, bringing Akira Kurosawa’s classic The Seven Samurai to a new audience, with David Fincher’s 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo proving that the trend is still alive and well.

Remakes, however, come in all forms, from devoted redoings to loose interpretations by filmmakers who put their own unique stamp on the material. The latter category includes the 2002 film Insomnia, which was directed by Christopher Nolan. The latter’s third film, and his last before taking on the Dark Knight trilogy, was an adaptation of Erik Skjoldbjærg’s 1997 film of the same name, with Alaska stepping in for Norway, and Al Pacino stepping in for Stellan Skarsgård. Now a video has emerged from Fandor examining the same scene from both films side by side to illustrate their similarities and differences. The resulting video can be seen below.
