Shutter Island

There is something about Leonardo Dicaprio that doesn’t ring true to me, but Scorsese is firing on all pistons as usual, save for a thing here or there. The opening sequence could have been just as suspenseful with no music at all as opposed to the insanely bombastic score that accompanies it. I’m glad he didn’t lay too heavily on the pop to score the rest of the film but the sound and music cues were really well done.

As far as the story…eh…you basically knew what was happening from the beginning and I guess people were into the “twist” but the quality of the movie really came from the suspense, the fantastic imagery, and the sound.
