Shutter Island

The implausible escape of a brilliant murderess brings U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his new partner (Mark Ruffalo) to Ashecliffe Hospital, a fortress-like insane asylum located on a remote, windswept island. The woman appears to have vanished from a locked room, and there are hints of terrible deeds committed within the hospital walls. As the investigation deepens, Teddy realizes he will have to confront his own dark fears if he hopes to make it off the island alive.

02/19/10 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Chris Garcia

Awash in atmospherics, shivering with Grand Guignol spooks and gimmicks, Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" is a potboiler whipped to frenzied operatic pulp. Lightning cracks, rain soaks cemeteries and kiddie ghosts haunt Leonardo DiCaprio, who looks period chic, chain-smoking in a fedora and trench coat. It's 1954, and DiCaprio's U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is chasing his tail on an island as inescapable as Alcatraz and as gnarled with mind-messing enigmas as the one on "Lost."

OK Film

Had to reflect and read others observations to try to understand this film. It didn't seem the director was sure what to make this film. It is psychological. What's real what's not.

Outstanding Psychological Thriller

If thinking makes your head hurt, you may want to avoid this one.

Leonardo DiCaprio is excellent, as are Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow and Patricia Clarkson.

I don't want to say too much about what happens; you should see it for yourself.

Once again Chris Garcia misses the point (apparently that's his signature). Does he actually see any of the movies he reviews? Does he stay awake? Whenever the statesman posts one of Garcia's reviews, I always get a second opinion from someone like Roger Ebert who actually enjoys movies.
