I don’t do a lot of movie reviews on the blog but after watching Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island Shutter Island last night I had to spread the word about how great this movie is!
The movie takes place in 1954 where Leonardo DiCaprio plays US Marshal Teddy Daniels. Daniels and his partner Chuck, played by Mark Ruffalo are sent to a mental institution on a remote island to investigate the report of an escaped patient thought to be somewhere on the island.
Categorized as a Drama/Mystery/Thriller Shutter Island has a few disturbing scenes along with great visuals. Max Von Sydow (I’ll always remember him from Strange Brew) and Ben Kingsley play very convincing roles as Psychiatrists at the hospital.
The movie has one of the better endings I’ve seen in a long time. I can’t say any more without possibly giving up one of the many plots in the movie. If you are looking for a captivating 2-hour movie I don’t think you can go wrong with this one!
