Shutter Island

Shutter IslandAnother nice evening spent with good friends in cinema. I just returned home from seeing Shutter Island (IMDB) starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow and Mark Ruffalo. The trailer made me expect a horror movie, but what I got was a kind of psycho thriller with a ending I didn’t expect.

SPOILER: A lot of effort was put in building up the story of Teddy and it fully worked for me. In the end the hero is not what you think or expect him to be and you realize that in the end there is just a very sad man that can’t take his life anymore. And a bunch of people helping him. The musical score is dark and sometimes too dramatic, but fitting. I like endings that are like life. Not always nice. Not always happy. Not always endings. This one has a ending. Teddy finally knows and decides for the way that at least helps him to erase all the sad memories. For him. Sad. But a good movie.

9.5 out of 10. For me. Most definitely.
