He uses lush, bright color during daytime and dream sequences to flush out a distinct feeling of terror. The good news is that Shutter Island carves out a place of its own in his resume. This is a film that creeps and crawls, and is filled with dark corners. Really, Scorsese should just give it away for anyone. Soon we begin to wonder, too, but not before he uncovers the tip of the iceberg and it's not only painfully intimate with his own past but also a mass conspiracy.
Leonardo is awesome as always. This is Scorsese at his most unrestrained. I always enjoy watching a film that is as unpredicatable as this film and where the director has turned the plot line on to his viewer. I just wanted to drink mango shake but then we randomly decided to go to eastwood and check the schedule. It had all the components of a great film, and then some. I was skeptical walking into the theater, wondering if this twist could hold water. In fact all of the acting in this film is excellent.
Similarly, DiCaprio reaches new levels. The acting is spot on from every character; none of it seems forged or out of place. The script is fantastic; it has one of the most intriguing plots I have seen in a while exception being Tarantino's Basterds. S Marshall is sent to an asylum to investigate a missing patient but discovers so much more. I often experience claustrophobia myself and there are certain films that really capitalize on that personal fear and make it more relevant and eerie to me. The rest of the film, however, is very faithful to Dennis Lehane's already great story. Every location is foreboding and drenched with hints of unseen danger in dark corners.
Shutter Island is certainly not a typical film, not even for Scorsese. Marty takes what he has learned from the great films of the past and puts it into his. This is also a film I would recommend seeing a second time. I will say that not everyone will like this; Shutter Island, again, isn't your typical movie. Priča filma Shutter Island odvija se 1954. It's a mix of noir and thriller.
For those of you, like me, who read and enjoyed the novel before seeing the film and felt that the trailers and advertisements for this film were leading you to believe there wouldn't be any narrative surprises in store, think again! I found the editing in the opening scene, with Chuck and Teddy approaching Shutter Island, to be very odd and frantic, though I think the audience will know why Scorsese displayed the scene the way he did after completing the film. Prior to viewing this film I had built a preconceived notion of what this thriller was going to be like because I was fooled yet again by good marketing when watching the trailer. Scorsese doesn't rely on the over-grainy, ugly presentation that most modern horror or suspense-riddled thrillers rely on. I'm so jealous of the girl playing his daughter. Scorsese's film features that one brief piece of dialogue at the films conclusion that results in an entirely different perception of the final act.
Though, it doesn't stop here, but to say anything else would do the story injustice Kingsley is in his finest role in years. But, you see, that is where this thriller becomes something more. For the moment at least. The Nazis had concentration camps and the Americans have Shutter Island. A film that will make you question your own sanity. They talk about their assignment.
Whether he sold his soul or not, he's quite ominous in every single scene he is present in. A film that will leave many upset, and hating it. In this day and age, I'm not surprised some found it terrible esp. It's amazing how good of an actor he is and he still hasn't won any Oscars. This is classic film noir.
And no one likes to be messed with. The man is one of the most brilliant directors of our time. The film starts with Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck, standing on a ferry. When I dress up, I don't see anyone I know but when I'm not properly dressed and I look like a mess, suddenly all these people come up to me and say hi. While it certainly does the source material justice, it also adds small changes that make for a distinctive experience. This movie does challenge the viewer physchologically and definitely holds your attention all the way through.
This is a fresh balance of both. Kada oluja, koja bijesni na otoku, prekine komunikacijske linije sa kopnom i novi, opasni pacijenti pobjegnu, bolnicom zavlada opći kaos. We see that this is a harsher character with poor posture, someone who doesn't sleep well, someone with a deep past They are greeted at the gate by guards whose attitudes' seem immediately suspect. There is one line of dialogue, right at the end of Shutter Island before the credits roll, that elevates the emotion of the film and makes it much more powerful. . Amongst others Elias Koteas, Ted Levine, Michelle Williams, all play small but wonderful roles. All those pieces of that puzzle you didn't catch the first time, you will the second.
Watching Leonardo is not bad at all. Teddyjeva pronicljivost omogućuje mu da otkrije korisne informacije, ali uprava bolnice odbija mu omogućiti uvid u bolničku dokumentaciju, za koju veruje da će mu pomoći da dođe do istine. We are bam, smack right into the story without so much as an opening montage. And it is all heightened by the coming storm that looms over the island. On that note, is it just me or has Sydow mysteriously not aged since The Exorcist? Neil Marshall's The Descent was one such picture, and this is another.
