The Cure for Insomnia
5th place in "Top Ten Longest Movies In History"

The Cure for Insomnia movie is running for more than 3 days, which makes it one of the longest movies ever. In 1987 Guinness World Records called it the longest in the world.

The Cure for Insomnia is running 87 hours (more than 3 days). In 1987, when it was released, Guinness World Records called it the longest in the world. Today it is on the 6th place on the list of the longest films ever. This movie is not only the longest but also the strangest. Directed by Henry Timmis IV, it had no obvious plot. Instead, the whole time actor Lee Groban was reading his poem with the same name as the movie has. This poem had 4,080 pages. Apparently, that influenced the duration of the film. I'm sure that even the poetry lovers can't enjoy a poem for such a long time, that's why the director placed some occasional heavy metal clips and porn videos during the movie – a very interesting method… The movie wasn't released on any home video formats, so it might be hard to find it today.
