Shutter Island 2010 ★★★★

although i got the story half way through this was hugely enjoyable. Felt more like Kubrick than Scorcese, and De Caprio is getting better and better, shades of Jack Nicholson about some of his mannerisms. The story was ultimately a bit overblown but boy did the almost pull it off.


  • Same plot and actors as inception but slighty better executed IMO.

  • dunno about the plot being same. It had less depth than inception where everything was plot which i felt overshadowed the character development, weakening their relationships, i didn't care in the end what happened to them. Shutter Island's not perfect. I'm still one of those people who needs the screen to go wavy when there's a flashback though, so maybe i'm just being stupid in not getting inception..

Please to comment.
