Shutter Island

Martin Scorsese goes all Hitchcock on us for this dark mystery based on the novel by Dennis Lahane (Mystic River). Leonardo DiCaprio is a U.S. marshall sent to investigate the inexplicable disappearance of a murderess from a hospital for the criminally insane on the remote Shutter Island. Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max Von Sydow, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson and Jackie Earl Haley are among the shifty-looking cast of this 1950s-set thriller. The script is creaky B-movie material, but Scorsese piles on the atmosphere, creating something akin to (if not exactly in the same league as) his Cape Fear remake. 138 minutes R.
