I am no movie reviewer and most of the time I don't generally talk about movies I have seen but I feel this one deserves a post. This is one of the best movies I have seen in some time, in fact, I really want to go back and see it again! I didn't realize it was a Martin Scorsese film until we were at the theater and the movie was very different from what I was expecting from the previews. I expected some crazy film effects and scary images and that's not exactly what I got. Instead, I was delighted to see a film that paid homage to one of my favorite film directors, Aflred Hitchcock. There were definite aspects in the way various scenes were filmed as well as the mode in which the story was told that was reflective of Hitchcocks signature style. Other aspects of the film that I truly enjoyed were the depth and colors in so many of the shots. I truly lost myself in this movie. I highly recommend you check it out!

I love Hitchcock thrillers! With all the crap we've been served these last few years, it's nice to hear that Shutter Island restores Hollywood's claim to great thrillers. Unfortunately, I heard from so people that it wasn't as good as they'd hoped or expected considering the director and great cast.
