This week on “Keep it Local” we talked about Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, Hollywood Theatre is showcasing the Oscar nominated shorts, plus my Top 6 includes Mother and Sonicsgate.
Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams
Running Time: 2 hrs 15 mins
Release Date: February 19, 2010
PLOT: Based on Dennis Lehane’s novel, U.S. Marshall Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio) and his new partner Chuck (Ruffalo) are called to a remote island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the disappearance of a woman from the island’s hospital for the criminally insane.
WHO’S IT FOR? This is not a horror film. This is a thriller. There are also moments where Shutter Island truly takes its time. Be ready for some slow (but good) scenes. The blood is intense, but nothing compared to a slasher flick, and it’s less than Inglourious Basterds.
EXPECTATIONS: I felt like I was waiting forever for this film. Originally it was due out in October. That’s normally a red flag. But when’s the last time Scorsese has truly messed up a movie? I’m glad you asked. It was 1999 with Nic Cage in Bringing Out The Dead.
Or just watch below to hear what I have to say. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win a copy of Matt Damon’s The Informant!. Though I always recommend reading me instead of watching me.
