Shutter Island

Powerfully unassuming with strong performances from DiCaprio, Kingsley, Williams and Ruffalo in a thinking tale of the mind.

Dark, gritty, dramatic mis-en- scene forward the narrative’s dark heart.

Flashbacks have a wonderfully theatrical feel and the soundtrack is oddly operatic in places and fittingly melodramatic in others.

DiCaprio is edgy from the get go; Ruffalo quietly reflective; Kingsley pragmatic and straightforward with Williams chilling and clandestine- a heady mix that at first seems as cunning as the characters themselves.

This is an edge of your seat thriller with a knowing playful twist that explores the power of the mind.

A must see from the a great partnership of DiCaprio and Scorsese
at the helm
