Hidden brilliance.

  • Excerpt: I could go on about the hidden brilliance of this masterpiece for hours. Scorsese is so unpredictable. I respect him for his risky changes of style and exploration of various genres. With Shutter Island he has delivered (in my humble opinion) a smart, delicate, philosophical and dramatic feature, which I consider one of his greatest films. The Academy must have something against Leonardo DiCaprio, because he is snubbed every frigging performance he brings to the screen.

"Shutter Island" by Yojimbo

FilmCrave
22 January 2012
  • Excerpt: A federal marshal enters a maximum security asylum for the criminally insane but when he begins to suspect that illegal experiments are being performed on the patients he starts to fear for both his safety and his sanity. Martin Scorsese hasn't had much luck when straying from his forte but this pulpy psychological thriller is pitched just right. Having DiCaprio as his leading man certainly does not hurt and he delivers yet another irritatingly fine performance.

  • Summary: An atmospheric film that draws you in with haunting and believable performances. The twist ending was unexpected to me and didn't detract or distract from what came before because Scorsese spends great care developing his characters and setting. Masterful performance by Leo.

Decent

  • Excerpt: I thoroughly enjoyed this movies throw back appeal. From the music to the scenery I thought it was very well done and invoked a style of movie making from the early days. Ones that would be considered cliche by todays standards but one that they somehow pulled off in this. I think this was a testament to the great acting involved in this movie. The actors really sold their roles so what one could consider cliche and unreal they made you believe. Well done on that front.
