Movie of the Week: Shutter Island


It’s hard to talk about this movie with spoiling it.  Let’s just say there is a point in the movie where either you will be like “What the fuck?” but go along with it or you will be like “What the fuck” and be very angry.  Honestly, I can see both sides of the argument.  The advertising sold this movie as a creepy thriller which it was for the most part (but not as creepy as the commercials would have you believe) but then you find out that the movie is…something else.  I, for one, loved what it was (my love for psychology makes me biased).

The performances were great although Leo should retire that Boston accent of his and Michelle Williams’ crazy didn’t work for me.

I need to see it again to really see how well the movie worked but I’m willing to see it again which is a good sign.

  1. I’m glad to hear it’s a “it’s not what it seems” kind of movie…to be honest, I’m wasn’t impressed with the trailers at first but lately, I’ve been quite intrigued. And that means a lot from a person (meaning me) who rarely goes to the movies.
