Film Review: Shutter Island

Brutal as Hell
17 December 2009
  • Excerpt: When I was younger, I didn’t care much for Scorsese films. Truth is, I didn’t understand them because there was some level of maturity there that was beyond my comprehension. As an adult, I’ve come to know and love each of his films (some more than others – Casino is my favorite), and I find that with each passing year, I love and respect Martin Scorsese even more. Shutter Island is no exception.

  • Conclusion: DiCaprio delivers a startling prettyboy-to-tough nut makeover – but he has to play it close to his chest here for the storyline to play out. Once you get past the trickery, Shutter Island offers sumptuous, enthralling, shivery gothic filmmaking with a hardboiled heart and a sly line in asylum humour. If a pot is being boiled, at least it’s an intricately-decorated pot on a spectacular fire.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
18 February 2010
  • Excerpt: "Shutter Island" opens with a dreadfully ominous musical composition, promptly setting the tone for this dark and disturbing thriller. The hospital for mental health is the perfect setting for the director to play games with the mind, as Teddy's scrutiny slowly intensifies, clouding his dreams with reality. The fragments of his delusions are haunting, as you're drowned in a loud and often exaggerated score.

Film Guide

  • Excerpt: Shutter Island is based on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name. With two of his previous books being made into exceptional films (Mystic River and Gone, Baby, Gone) it’s easy to go into Shutter Island with reasonable expectations. Warning bells are raised early in the film however, by Scorsese’s overbearing use of dramatic sounds in a effort (I’m guessing) to instill a sense of foreboding. Well, foreboding installed, but not in the way Scorsese meant.

  • Excerpt: Författaren Dennis Lehane kom till mig av en slump. Danske Niels, mitt plank av boll, undrade om jag hade läst Lehanes romaner och vid nekande svar klämde han en pocketbok i näven på mig. Denne bok hette Patient 67 och har sedermera blivit filmen Shutter Island i inte så okända Martin Scorseses konstfärdiga händer.

  • Excerpt: Alla trodde ju att Leonardo DiCaprio skulle fastna i baby face-facket. Lite som Johnny Depp och bli tvungen att förnedra sig med mustasch och hatt för att bevisa sin ålder.
