4.0 out of 5 stars The Mournful Sounds that Keep the Insomnia Awake! March 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
The music that David Julyan conducts for this film is almost superior to that of memento. The music fits the film 100%. The mournful and guilt ridden sounds of the music fit that of Pacino's character. It is a beautifully composed album. The opening title track fits over the bleak cold landscape of the opening sequence, very very well. If you liked the musis of Memento, then you will like this. BUY IT!!!!!

We have a wide range of reviews about this film, from the borderline pretentious that need to remind everyone it's a remake although the film does that itself (not to mention complain about it), to the ADD-inflicted "this was boring" crowd.
Ultimately, the score for this film effectively captured the brooding and occasionally melancholy tone. Personally, this may be one of the very few remakes that I thought was more effective than the original film, albeit they're both masterpieces.
I'm dropping a star for the score's monotony, but it's ultimately very smart, very tragic, and very beautiful. A magnificent film from a director that's really headed toward terrific fame. I can't wait for his Hughes biopic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music score from an awesome composer! Dec 27 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a fan of David Julyan's score from Memento (the reason why I bought the soundtrack to that movie, which is my favorite movie of all time!) so I automatically asked for this CD! I got it and I loved it! I like movie scores alot (anything from John Williams is a must have) but the scores to Memento and Insomnia are my favorites! I recommend this CD to everyone who saw the movie and enjoyed it! If you're a fan of Julyan's and don't have this CD, GET IT!!!...

I am not sure how many are aware that Insomnia is actually just a re-make of the 1996 Norwegian film Insomnia by Erik Skjoldbjaerg which won prizes at various international film festivals.
So, why the need for a re-make? True, I love Chris Nolan's work, and Memento is my all-time favourite film, so I hope that when Insomnia comes out that he has done it no injustice.
As for the soundtrack, what made the original film so impressive was the haunting, ambient soundtrack composed by Geir Jenssen, probably the leading ambient artist in the world. David Julyan may compose great soundtracks, but the original soundtrack should definitely have been used again. It set the atmosphere, with Geir Jenssen being from the actual city where the original was film. Now the new film has been relocated to the US (why? Nolan's British, isn't he?), your standard Americanization of any decent European film to make it a hit in the US box office, and the score has been changed. I have listened to the soundtrack (and still not seen the film), but if the film is anything like the original, the soundtrack now has none of the same monumental and chilling character that together with the beautiful imagery from within the Arctic Circle provokesd in me when I saw the original. Instead, the score strikes me as a bit bland and the strings don't really fit in, and it's as if I heard it all before in another soundtrack.
