Shutter Island

Shutter Island ★★★★★


Leo Vs. The Island. Calmly paranoid, like a patient on the cusp of death. Just pregnant with unforgettable images: a smoking half-cigarette hanging off a cliff, stone statues made evil by a migraine's force, a lighthouse as a periodic reminder of the film's countless little mysteries. DiCaprio is in a perpetual state of vulnerability; all roaming eyes and aggressive behavior. This is Scorsese's feature-length "Hitchcock, Bava, Robert Wise" concoction, and it's one of his very best.
