Director Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio triumph with Shutter Island, a true spellbinder from one of the greatest living directors. Scorsese manages to keep the audience off-balance for the entire experience, while DiCaprio blasts the roof off the place with a gut-wrenching performance. Neither of them misses a beat, and the film will captivate those of you willing to be floored. DiCaprio plays a U.S. marshal investigating a strange hospital for the criminally insane. This is not a movie that just washes over you; the viewer needs to perk up a bit and pay attention. Even if you guess what’s going on, Scorsese and DiCaprio make the ride well worth your time. There’s great joy in all levels of this journey, from the technical aspects to the performances.

Colorado Springs Independent Dark and stormy Scorsese seems to really enjoy this bestseller-based suspense thriller as Gothic horror noir throwback. It lets him swim with his many influences. It lets him prove at last the reasons for his faith in DiCaprio, who really delivers. by Jonathan Kiefer 02/18/2010
