Shutter Island

"Shutter Island" is the story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule, who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island's fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

Reviews & Comments

With “Shutter Island,’’ Martin Scorsese proves susceptible to the chic of filming a Dennis Lehane bestseller. Clint Eastwood turned “Mystic River’’ into lugubrious opera; Ben Affleck pumped “Gone Baby Gone’’ full of pulp. Surprisingly, Scorsese divines Hitchcock in the competing genres of Lehane’s book, which trotted out psychological suspense, grisly melodrama, wartime horror, and some risibly punning names while spinning a yarn about two federal marshals on the hunt for an escaped mental patient.

Feb 26, 2010 - cvale on Shutter Island

The "Globe" reviewer missed the boat on this one. "Shutter Island" is riveting, from the unfolding of the plot to the Hitchcock-like camera angles. The acting is, across the board, terrific. It's a sophisticated psychological thriller that actually assumes we viewers have a brain and don't need to be bombarded with gore or over-the-top acting. I will admit, the music could be toned down a little and I found that it sometimes got in the way.
