Shutter Island

Shutter Island(2010)

I love how much Scorsese gets out off a somewhat simple premise. Everything is presented through a glass darkly and the end result is far more disturbing than the typical Hollywood heavy handedness. Instead of being brutal it evokes the impression of slow decent into madness, and not a caricature or madness but a sense of how murkily psychosis colours our perception of the world. This evocative of an old school Polanski thriller.
