Movie: Shutter Island (2010)

Someone is missing.

Verdict: Intriguing & thought-provoking!

1954, Shutter Island - U.S. Marshal Edward "Teddy" Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) investigates the case of a murderer who has disappeared and escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane. Worse, she might be hiding somewhere on the remote island.

A word of caution: Don't be fooled by this simple synopsis. :)

This movie is in fact a very brilliant psychological thriller that challenges you psychologically and demands your attention to discern reality from delusion. As the movie rolls on, you will be thinking, "Is this how the mind of those who are psychologically impaired or criminally insane work?"

The idea of "manipulating" what-could-possibly-happen-if-you're-a-psycho-case scenario into a movie is not something new. I've seen this approach in some Korean movies. However, kudos to the director,
Martin Scorsese who has successfully "tricked" us with elements of suspense and unpredictability throughout the entire movie, from the beginning till the end. Get ready for a good and unexpected twist-ending.

Leonardo DiCaprio proves that he's not just a pretty face. His performance in this movie deserves our attention.

To be honest,
this is not your typical weekend movie for mere entertainment. Brace yourself for a compelling, heart-gripping, and thought-provoking movie. No tissues needed but you'll leave the cinema hall in bewilderment. Am I exaggerating? Perhaps. But the verdict is yours to make. :)
