Shutter Island

I stopped getting excited for new Scorsese movies after Bringing Out the Dead. And I’ve never loved anything Lehane wrote. But somehow, Shutter Island intrigues me. It intrigues me in a I-look-forward-to-Netflixing-it sort of way, but still.


Ben Kingsley pulling a full-on Donald Pleasence (at the :58 mark) cracked me up: “It’s as if she evaporated...straight through the walls.” I hope she escaped to a nearby Nifty Fifties, where she shared a malted with Michael Myers. (Can you picture them? One glass, two straws. Aww.)
