I got this soundtrack before I even saw the movie. Well, I had to once I realized it was composed by David Julyan; the genius behind the music of "Memento" and "Following." I can say that this is one of my new favorite movie scores.
Very much like "Memento" and "Following," this score is very haunting and quiet. It really gets you thinking like someone who has insomnia. Each track is nothing but pure brilliance. The soundtrack also reminded me of the "Unbreakable" one, except only better. I really like the violins and the piano used on this score. Now after seeing the movie, I listen to this outstanding score and it's like reliving the movie.
David Julyan has a talent when it comes to movie scores. I hope that he scores other movies in this genera in the near future. He could be the next Danny Elfman. (I actually like Julyan's music a little better.)
If you liked the "Memento" score, then chances are that you will enjoy this one just as much, if not more. There are no "band" songs, so you don't have to skip around to just hear the score. This is a haunting and beautiful soundtrack. If you love the movie, get the music. And get this one while you still can; I have a feeling this might be a rare one to get in the very near future.

David Julyan is an underrated composer, while some of the music here is subtle, it does be suspenseful when it needs to be and also thought-provoking. While i was watching the film, i couldn't help but be enchanted by the sad, melancholic tunes i was hearing.

Now after 5 years of listening to the music, i say it doesn't get tiresome, a bit repetitive but still does the job. Australia doesn't get all composed music for films, only some since there is not a big market for them, so i snatched it up here and i am happy that i did.

If you like the works of David Julyan, here is where to start, great symphonic music from start to finish and great buy too!

Director Christopher Nolan presents this psychological thriller of film noir as Al Pacino (Will Dormen-police detective) and Robin Williams (Walter Finch) play mind games, with Pacino in an Oscar winning performance. This has all the earmarkings of the years best thriller with menacing and tense twists. Pacino and Williams will likely keep you on the edge of your seat, as each actor gives their all.
Composer David Julyan who gave us the scores from "Following" (1998) and "Memento" (2000) another Christopher Nolan film of gripping proportions, sends the same message with this score from "Insomnia". Julyan takes the audience to another level with orchestration, arrangements and themes of internal affairs, police corruption, blackmail and suspense with haunting mesmerizing edges.
Take note of the stand outs ~ "FOG", with shades of Bernard Herrmann's understated pulsating arranging of counterpoints, brings back many wonderful memories when you listen to this captivating score ~ "KAY'S FUNERAL", so convincingly Hitchcock's "Vertigo", the theme gets under your skin ~ "WALTER'S LAKE HOUSE", slowly building with strings sounding the alarm, quiet percussion and additional strings come to the forefront, a single kettle drum pounds in the background with syncopation of darkness ~ "CLOSING TITLES", weaves each theme into a thrilling fabric of musical fibre, giving you what all "film-score-buffs" crave, closing to top-notch performances from a gifted composer...gotta love it!

The score for this excellent crime thriller sounds as if it was composed in the manner of a grand opus, then broken down into many different themes with the same variation. There is a certain repetitious pattern throughout that suggests a moody atmosphere, gloom, the unknown that lays beyonds the mist and the hazy, nebulous theme of the film. Even though the cues remain essentially the same, they are no less intriguing and eerie, given the nature of the movie's plot. This CD is still enjoyable even if heard on its own apart from the film, a perfect symphony of mystery, light and shade.

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!!!...

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!!!!!
