Shutter Island Regie Martin Scorsese


At the time of this writing, it is Scorsese’s last feature to be shot entirely on film. Choosing the 2.35:1 aspect ratio, he uses the frame to exaggerate the interplay between the vertical and the horizontal, compressing the film’s spaces until the screen is suffocated, and escalating the sense of foreboding and claustrophobia… Shutter Island sculpts its contours from the psychological and spiritual torment of its main character, creating a theater of cruelty.

Was sagen Andere darüber?

  • Kenji's rating of the film Shutter Island

    The US has carried out numeorus experiments on its powerless citizens- people with learning disabilities, mental health problems, physical sickness, prisoners and racial minorities, as well as other nationalities; using deadly diseases, toxic and radioactive chemicals, surgical experiments, sterilising, torture etc etc. Maybe Scorsese might give us a film on that reality, instead of a Caligari horror version?

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Shutter Island

    Allusions to Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' can be derived from this sterling effort from Scorsese, which fails to coalesce as a whole. Its verdict on notions of perception in relation to mental health are intriguing if over-sensationalised. Hardly equivalent to early Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) but gripping all the same.

  • elenagallen's rating of the film Shutter Island

    The character's trauma is a brilliantly complex fictional excuse to expose an obscure truth that articulates the first half of the film and which could be, its essence, instead of the background as we are prone to assume. Final twist invalidation is the spectator being manipulated by the director to make his point when forcing us to experience the discredit of the whole discurse of a madman prophetized by Dr. Rachel

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Shutter Island

    Unlike Nolan's convenient set-in-stone division of dimensions, Scorsese traverses through and blends the real, the delusional, and dream realms—in film they're all one. Doing it unbeknownst to the viewer, relying on generic traits to sustain the illusion until the third act reveals one of cinema's great unreliable narrators. Leaving the piecing together up to the viewer, without a single answer as the right one.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Shutter Island

    A film that demands several viewings, this is an intricate puzzle put together by the maestro himself. The great cast also pushes this film along nicely delivering an intriguing and enjoyable experience.

  • The Macho King's rating of the film Shutter Island

    Yeah you can see the twist coming,but so what………… -Teddy Daniels: "You know, this place makes me wonder." -Chuck Aule: "Yeah, what's that, boss? ……………………..Teddy Daniels: "Which would be worse - to live as a monster, or to die as a good man?"----------------------- [gets up and walks off]

  • Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Shutter Island

    I wasted 45 minutes before deciding a further investment of an hour was a bad idea. Edna is v generous with 1 star. Bomb, turkey, dead dodo, dud. Plot of no interest. DiCaprio more wooden than James Stewart. Dialogue almost incomprehensible - I had to put on the subtitles for the deaf but they were illiterate. And why do all "evil doctor villains" have to be played by a Briton? Ben Kingsley looked as bored as I was.

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film Shutter Island

    The flashbacks and dream-sequences are truly haunting and easily among the best things Marty has ever done. Call me crazy, but this is actually one of my favorite films of his. Sure, it's little more than a dark, arty genre exercise -- but it's perfectly cast, visually crisp and drum-tight.
