PS - The rating I gave this film came about instantly after I finished watching the film, which was probably a couple of months ago now.
Scorsese's first film after the Oscar-winning The Departed over three years ago, Shutter Island is his most deliberate foray into a genre picture since Cape Fear (1991), and like that project will likely divide audiences and have critics and fans asking why a director of Marty's stature and accomplishment is toiling in such material to begin with.
Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his newly appointed partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are assigned to investigate the disappearance of a murderess (Emily Mortimer) who escaped from an asylum for the criminally insane on the mysterious Shutter Island.
