Shutter Island review

Filed under: Movie reviews — BJ @ 12:46 pm

If I were to describe “Shutter Island” in one word, I would say it’s “perfect.” From the brilliant writing from Laeta Kalogridis to the classical soundtrack fitting the maddening atmosphere to the continued successful execution from the LeoScorsese collaboration, this movie truly delivers on all cylinders. I’m quick to put this up there with “The Departed,” and they even share plenty of portent.

I can’t make out what the commercial trailer’s about, but as mysteriously appealing as it looks, it’s even better. Mark Ruffalo and Ben Kingsley offer convincing supporting roles, and this is quite simply a must-watch. We’re only in February, but this movie should hold up as one of the year’s best.

4 stars out of 4

If you don’t know what a lobotomy is, you might want to watch this before you go see it.




  1. Don’t be a pussy.

  2. I don’t think I can watch; the old lady shushing the camera is way too creepy.
