Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Shutter Island (2010)

Directed by Martin Scorsese

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow


A classic thriller. Scorsese definitely channeled Hitchcock for this one.

Story is nice and twisty. Great sets, careful special effects, and smooth, sweeping camera motions really set the mood. Some editing/continuity errors. I know a lot of it was intentional, but some of it was just sloppy.

DiCaprio’s good at playing the tormented man.
