The joint work by Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio have been so far very fine films. And SHUTTER ISLAND tops that yet, because here both present a very intelligent psychological thriller that comes with incredible atmosphere and is not faring in exposure, butorganic washesalong the Act presents the back story. With this film, Scorsese proves that he is a master of the power structure. And he has an ensemble that takes the soul out of the body. For DiCaprio, this is not surprising, when Mark Ruffalo you would like to call “Bravo”.
The man has developed immensely. The verbal slugfest between the investigators and the Ben Kingsley played head of the institution is fantastic. Conclusion: Intelligent thriller with interesting end!
