Shutter Island

Shutter Island ★★★★★

"Crazy people are the perfect subjects. They talk, nobody listens."

Shutter Island is chilling, haunting, beautifully structured, sublimely scored, its painterly images penetrate the soul. Amazingly, when I first saw it I was so invested in Teddy Daniels' struggle. Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant here to solve the mystery that I tricked myself into believing there were two possible interpretations to the ending much like Teddy Daniels deludes himself one somewhat hopeful, but there is tragically only one possible explanation and it's absolutely heartbreaking. The whole cast is superb, particularly Ben Kingsley, Mark Ruffalo and Michelle Williams. In all, Martin Scorsese is brilliant as always.
