Neither of us have seen Sleepless (though I'm definitely going to check it out soon), but we're both big fans of Sleepless Night and hope that the remake at the very least shines some light on that fantastic original.
Our discussion included english remakes that were better, worse, shot-for-shot identical to their origin material or significant to us for other reasons good or bad. In the order discussed, here's the ground we covered.
Le Dernier Tournant (1939) directed by Pierre Chenal and The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981) directed by Bob Rafelson were both based on the novel by James M. Cain and actually neither are as well known as the 1946 Tay Garnett-directed version starring Lana Turner and John Garfield.
Contraband (2012) directed by Baltasar Kormakur who also produced the original Reykjavik-Rotterdam (2008) which was directed by Oskar Jonasson's original. I apologize for my terrible pronunciations and for mis-crediting (switching) Kormakur and Jonasson on the podcast.
I'll leave the content of the discussion for the podcast, but here are a few we didn't discuss that I wasn't aware until recently even were remakes...
Plenty of others we didn't get into including Point of No Return/La Femme Nikita, Criminal/9 Queens The Next Three Days/Anything For Her, as well as both versions of Breathless, Nightwatch, Bangkok Dangerous, Oldboy, Pusher, Insomnia, We Are What We Are and The Vanishing. Maybe we'll do something like this again sometime.
Over at Letterboxd I've put together as complete a list as I could think of: English Language Remakes of Foreign Crime Flicks. Lemme know what I missed.
