Shutter Island

"World War II soldier-turned-U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) investigates the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane, but his efforts are compromised by his own troubling visions and by Dr. Cawley (Ben Kingsley). Mark Ruffalo, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer and Max von Sydow co-star in director Martin Scorsese's plot twist-filled psychological thriller set on a Massachusetts island in 1954." courtesy of netflix

There's not much I can say about this movie (because I don't want to give anything away) other than the fact that its brillant. It's not scary, you might tense up, but I DON'T do scary, I hate them and I can't even watch CSI or Law and Order, and this isn't scary, its just suspensful, so know that part because I didnt want to watch it for the longest time because I thought it was scary. the acting is brillant, the directing, of course, is brillant. Its nothing that your expecting from start to finish. definitley watch it.


  1. I thought I posted, but must've glitched...

    This movie was so disturbing on so many levels. But the cinematography was absolutely stunning throughout.

    Speaking of cinematography (and editing and other technical movie stuff) -- did you ever see Inception?

  2. yeah it was definitley psychological but in a really cool way and the acting and all that other amazing stuff was...amazing.

    Its my netflix queue but I havent watched it yet, my dad won't let me re-order his queue so I gotta just wait while he orders crappy movies, haha.
