On the trail of a killer (Robin Williams), a cop (Al Pacino) suffers from sleep deprivation in a part of Alaska where the sun never sets.

A whole lot of awesome.

There's a whole lot of awesome to be had in this one. Pacino kicks some ass as a smarmy cop who accidentally kills his partner and tries to cover it up while working on catching a killer and doing his best not to let horrible horrible sleep deprivation effect his work (or social skills (or driving)). Robin Williams makes for a very good creeper and I would much prefer to see him in drama roles like this, rather than the shitty comedy he's done lately. Just saying.
