    Shutter Island

    Shutter Island (2010)

    I enjoyed watching this film...it entertained, was well made, paced and plotted in a satisfying way. But...well I couldnt help thinking that it was quite 'small'..inflated excessively by the size of the personages involved..e.g.Scorsese..Di Caprio...

    A lesser known cast and director may have distracted less..giving this quite small reminiscence of earlier, gothic style pscyho-dramas...more punch..more potency...more immersion in its hallucinatory world.

    Still worth seeing if you want to be entertained.
