Insomnia (2002)
Academy Award winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank lead an astounding cast and turn in powerful performances for the rivetting psychological thriller from the acclaimed director of Memento. When two LAPD detectives are sent to a remote Alaskan town to aid in the investigation of an alarming teen murder, they find themselves under the glare of the region's perpetual daylight. While closing in on the murderer, veteran officer Will Dormer's (Pacino) partner is killed, and the jaded cop is compromised by the calculated mind games of the primary suspect - a reclusive writer, Walter Finch (Williams). Sleep-deprived and guilt-ridden over his role in his partner's death, Dormer must outmaneuver a brilliantly idealistic local cop (Swank), a brilliantly twisted killer and the brilliance of the Midnight Sun.

Insider, The
Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture! Gripping and powerful, THE INSIDER keeps you on the edge of your seat as it recounts the chain of events that pitted an ordinary man against big business, and ultimately dragged people into the fight of their lives. Academy Award Winner Al Pacino (Any Given Sunday, The Devil's Advocate) and Russell Crowe (L.A. Confidential and Mystery, Alaska) star as two men crusading together for a public health issue charged with emotion. And it's not long before they both find out just how badly the corporate giants want to save their bottom lines. This absorbing thriller also stars Christopher Plummer (Malcolm X) and Gina Gershon (Face/Off). THE INSIDER will thrill you with its unbelievable twists and turns.

Recruit, The (2003)
Academy Award winner Al Pacino (Scent of a Woman, Heat), Hollywood heartthrob Colin Farrell (Minority Report, Hartís War) and sexy Bridget Moynahan (The Sum Of All Fears, Coyote Ugly) star in this explosive, sexy, action-packed psychological thriller. James Clayton (Farrell), is one of the smartest college graduates in the country, just the person Walter Burke (Pacino) wants in the agency. James quickly rises through the ranks and falls for Layla (Moynahan), one of his fellow recruits. But just when he starts to question his role and his cat-and-mouse relationship with his mentor, Burke taps him to root out a mole. As the suspense builds in a maze of gripping twists and turns, there are only two things James can count on Ė he canít trust anyone and nothing is as it seems.
